      To you, perhaps, but any task to free slaves was unconvincing to those
      who owned them. I.e any argument to those who maintain the status quo is
      usually unconvincing.

      If it was setting a flag, I wouldn't have raised the issue. If it
      involves a
      long complex script, and/or external helper programs on each platform
      then I am.

      It also talks about needing external utilities ported to each
      platform to work
      reliably (the pure-vim script says the other is more reliable).
