Five Fucking Years

Danga sponsored development of this patch (twice?) many years ago. Glad to see it finalllly go in.

have to admit...

...whiny blog posts drove me to investigate and revive that Six Apart patch.

FWIW, I just ignore all bureaucratic rejection messages, especially for security stuff. Six Apart should have done that, too. ;)

I hate the people who say "it's not a perfect solution so we shouldn't do it."

Congratulations on Danga's completed project!  Coincidentally, 5 fucking years was how long it took me to get the governments of USA and Canada to allow me to move Northward.

For what it's worth, Opera's 9.5 Alpha (released two days ago) apparently has support for it too.

i've been an opera user since the 6.x days-
and yeah- the 9.5 weekly seems to be kicking ass-
the pageloads are even faster and the imap support seems... robustified

i kinda agree with the 5-year timeframe ;) - in the sense that i see an XXS vulerability as strictly a server-side problem
