Nor that you *have* to do it. :)

I think that Kenneth has presented a pretty good argument 
for why they want to introduce this functionality, and also 
reminded us that their past decision was received 
favourably.

We should not feel forced to make clever uses of this new 
feature, just because the OTP team feels that it is needed
at their level. Even so, if we do feel so compelled, you are
definitely allowed to. ;-)
