This was precisely Sven's main point, that 
confusion can arise. But cutting the function
out of the executable would just break any 
do files and programs that used it correctly, 
and thus penalise the just as well as the unjust. 

However, if the same people keep logs and 
look at their output carefully, then said 
fatal error should come to light.
