I was wondering if that would come up.  I'm the guy that put that comment
in the man page source.  Then they took it out.  Losers.  

I am not the guy who wrote you can tune a file system but you can't
tuna fish, I believe that was Kirk.


P.S.  Can't believe I'm claiming credit for a comment in a man page.  I
need to get a life.
