Although, I rarely post on this list (But, I do read almost every post), I 
feel compelled to participate in this thread:

When I hear things like this I cringe. Particularly, when the noun 
"Consultant" is used in the same sentence with "But it worked in 
Windows...". There are hobbiest on this list who have a better grasp
of the nomenclature and style of gcc than this so called "Consultant".

In fact, if anyone submitted code to me as described above, they
would not get paid, but would absolutely, at a minimum, be fired. 

This has taken RTM to a new level. In fact, in this case, the noun 
"Gomer" is more appropriate than "Consultant".
