OK, I'll buy the learning angle.

From the FAQ:

    Our disassembler and assembler don't support round-tripping,
    although they use similar formats.  If someone wants to submit
    round-tripping patches, then that would be great.  But it isn't a
    high priority for us.

So, feel free to fix it if you think it is busted, and I'll integrate the 
changes.  It's already a little better since the two bugs from mdupont that I 
fixed today.

I suppose it's the purist in me that favours well-designed tools over text 
mode script hacks. :-)
