It is a compliment!  Generally when a new feature was added in the past, it
was in direct response to a user request for something specific and that is
how it was designed.  And then creative users come along and take advantage
of the new feature to do something a little different.

OpenEDL section in the manual needs to be better written and I am
"secretly" hoping that Igor will review it and fix what is stated wrong
because it looks like I wrote that original section and as things came up,
just shoved in changes.  I am sure Andrea added some improvements.

"Wrong" can just mean "unexpected" --  I do this all the time.
