Yeah, you're right. It's just that I've been answering all these
xaw3d questions on my own (and having to repeat everything I
say), and then I make *one* mistake, and immediately you notice

I think just telling everybody to move those xaw3d lines to the bottom is
good enough. (unless somebody comes up with an example where removing
