I looked into this, and couldn't figure it out.

Please do file a bug for now, I have no idea how to fix this...

Filed the patch here:


Reviews welcome. I'm particularly doubtful of the dla-map thing - it's
not in the source repo, but can I assume it's present on the website

Sure, please do.


People arbitrarily, or as a matter of taste, assigning numerical values
to non-numerical things. And then they pretend that they haven't just
made the numbers up, which they have. Economics is like astrology in
that sense, except that economics serves to justify the current power
structure, and so it has a lot of fervent believers among the powerful.
