Yeah, I know. That doesn't make it "useful".
And given the reaction to porn-get and bitchx and
whatever-the-stripping-cpu-monitor-was-called , I tend to assume that
the true intent of such an ITP is to instigate yet another 500 post
flame war between the "but what about the children" crew and the "you
can't censor me!" crew. It's all just so damn tiresome.
 Not that I think "useful" is a necessary requirement, and brainfuck
is a neat toy. I personally have no objection to the ITP.
 Countering that is that the package is named "bfc" rather than
"brainfuck", so maybe I'm being unfair, and it's not a deliberate
attempt to rile people.
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
