If you get a good, workable answer to this, I'd love to see it. I've dealt
with developers who totally ignore my notes stating that the same parameter
has been named three different ways or there are no examples for 50% of the
functions in this API, while sending me a markup with repeated notations on
the order of: "wrong font" or "shouldn't this column be wider?" What 'ya
gonna do???
