I absolutely cannot believe I'm saying this given what the change 
implements and my general steaming hatred associated with it ... but 
this is awesome work and a definite improvement over what existed before 
it. If we're going to be stuck sharing the Bad Trip that is Lennart's 
projected consciousness, this is a pleasant surprise of a positive outcome.

Thank you for learning about the topic and for teaching me something in 
the process.
