That was my point.  At the time this was unleashed on the RPGII
community, people said: 'Hey, that's pretty slick.  I can flip/flop a
date format in a single instruction.'

Then the underlying hardware changed and suddenly something 'slick'
became expensive.  Expensive in both the cost of computing performance
but also expensive in removing it.
