Hmm, this is completely backwards; somehow the original NKI linting patch 
has been forgotten; all that made it here is commentary on the one 
part of it that no-one wanted applied. So, the real question is, should I 
be applying the rest of his patch? Note that it's adding an NKI. Also note 
that we're ahead of schedule for the 2010 release date Neale promised :-)
