I'm okay with this change, but please don't launch a personal war against
the playful nature of the authors' authorial voice.

If there's one compliment that the book has received above all others
(besides merely being solid technically) it's that it is enjoyable to read,
which is not altogether common among technical books.  Part of that comes
from turns of phrase such as the one this change destroys.  Part of it is
the leisurely pace that Richard has already bemoaned.  Those things are, as
far as I'm concerned, as important as the technical details themselves.  If
you prefer a shorter, dry-er read, this might just not be the book for you.
