I have to agree too...When we quit fixing things that cause the users
problems, the code is dead.

Eggdrop has been fairly stable ever since I found the sharebug. No code
will *ever* be bug free or 100% stable, and it's an unrealistic goal.

Funny that the same excuse I see over and over is that fixing this issue
would cause bugs....Well, damn, if there were bugs with it, they would
have shown up in 1.5 by now...nick-len has been in the tree for quite some
time now. It's no big deal to remove a patch from cvs either if it's found
to have bugs.

Eggdrop 1.4 is dead and 1.5 is too unstable for the average user to
use...gosh...this sure looks like the 1.1.5 -> 1.3 all over again.
