I'm thankful the script writer took a moment to email me and let me know
about it. I can't stress enough: if you add a feature to an existing
wheel, put it out there so other users can benefit from it! If it's useful
for you, at least one other person in the world (and more realistically, a
lot of other persons in the world) will find it useful.
