What I *did* provide is constructive criticism and useful feedback, to those who have ears to listen. The problem is you're not interested in hearing it.

Right, let me just go through the entire source code to deconstruct it, parsing out the meaning of every tersely-named variable and function name or totally undocumented function, so I can make a patch containing about a thousand comments that need to be added--then submit it here, so that y'all can pick it apart line by line and call me a moron. I'll get right on that.

Yes, of course; because this group is obviously, based on the responses, a gaggle of toxic, basement-dwelling dweebs who aren't actually interested in constructive criticism or feedback.

Free clue: Not everyone is a bunch of angry, closed minded dweebs as y'all apparently are. I just provided some similar feedback on the Squid mailing list the other day and it was well received, and politely so. They even agreed with what I was saying. Imagine that.
