i was more worried about the linux people when i requested that the
document be authored.  i figured it was something that the linux/unix
developers left open because they all knew they needed different
settings for these values, depending on what you are doing -- which is
the way they write things.

at the same time, i assumed that operating systems that you buy or steal
or have automatically installed on the computer that you purchased would
have the time, money and inclination to set this for you.  like many
assumptions, this was wrong.  my assumption was that there were no
problems with expensive corporation backed software.  my assumption
discovered the corporation backend?  i will not assume this.

instead, the next site will make a universal howto section that branchs
when necessary into operating systems; either for language or for actual
computer differences.  as they are discovered.  if there are any
differences.  no more assumptions.

even based on an assumption, i errored on the side of caution.  i assume
i will keep doing this ....
