Who cares?  Readability, maintainability, understandability!!!

If I never again have to pour through calcs thinking "OK, now what sets 29?
 No setons, no results - hmmm.  Here is a movea to *in,20.  Is it long enough
to affect 29? No? well here is a movea to *in,15 and it is a 16 char field so
it might set 29 depending upon its 15th postion.  Now what affects the 15th
position of the 16 char field that....." ever again I will pay the
.00000000000000000001% of the total lifetime processing power of our 400 that
is utterly, flagrantly, WASTED by using seton.

Just my $.02, Lance
