Okay, I suppose from within lwat you use a similiar technique in PHP.

Well, as for the letters, they will be defined in logon.bat. Of course 
these were only samples, but maybe one can settle to a least 
denominator. Dirk Wenzel replied to a question regarding roaming 
profiles: Dummy XP users tend to cover their desktop with images and 
other large files - being synced with any login/off. Accordingly there 
is a good explanation at 
http://de4.samba.org/samba/docs/using_samba/ch04.html how to handle 
those profile directories and hide them from users.

Well, maybe my first conclusion is too pretentious. How about this:
- try to write at least 3 words with any wiki edit that removes
  contributions of other people.
- *try* to write comments for major edits (non-trivial i.e.)

When fixing typos, I just write "typo", when creating a page, I 
comment "init". But after all, a Wiki has some things in common with a 
SVN/CVS and hence deserves some comments from its contributors.
