That's a good point; now that I think about it some more, I'm surprised
using the ip address only works at all.

As for large directories, some filesystems may be able to handle them
efficiently, but humans don't, nor does the shell ("rm *"; "Argument
list too long").  Granted, humans probably don't have much reason to
look in there, but it was an easy change...

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we
are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic
and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.
-Theodore Roosevelt, 26th US President (1858-1919)
