Yes. Or add a dependency. I'd just prefer not to add a dependency where there is none; instead, I'd prefer if TopGit could be aided with the serialisation in cases when it cannot possibly make a proper decision. -- martin | http://madduck.net/ | http://two.sentenc.es/ "a mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems." -- paul erdös spamtraps: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
