Yes. I just couldn't find an explanation for the "why" in the thread. The eh... "meta-information" didn't point anywhere I could follow to such a "directional" requirement. #2 seems easier and preferable, so (unless I'm horribly confused), I still don't get why the OP wanted #1.

Not so important though.
