  much more than the obvious matter at hand would.

  I find this a rather peculiar position, but since I read this from the
  specifications and tend to use pathname translations to provide a virtual
  file system that is far easier to maneuver than the physical file system
  I have to work on, I really do wonder what the problem is.

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
