I agree -- now you have choice instead of inconsistency. I like it. I 
mean, as a user, I like it. If I had to maintain this code, I'd hate it. 
So I'm glad it's you and not me. Kudos. :D But seriously, thanks for the 

Although if the variable name really is ...-seletion-... and not 
...-selection-... then I'd have to go back to saying it's a bug. :)


PS: Whoops, I see Bernt already caught that! Man, you people are fast.
