      aaahhh, pedantic mode is not helpfull 
      in the moment, but it will be added before 
     nowadays most the time I'm hunting in an irregular, 
     undiscovered, sometimes hostile data-space,
     interactive in emacs idl-pvwave mode and try to 
     survive with hybris and tons of existing or
     'ad-hoc' tools. probably very common...
     I don't want to fight against IDL too --
     but while IDL *promised* an umbrella (i.e. 'heap_gc')
     I was flying into a passion when I got the
     impression, that this umbrella don't work 
     *just* in the case of rain.
