No. I take everyone seriously, I do not pick on anyone (or at least I try 
to). I was just warning him or whoever takes this idea, that this an 
enormous undertaking. Understand me: the idea is _good_ but I do not know 
whether anyone would do it. Regarding 'fun', let me quote Steven: "hacking 
core is fun".

Another example. pager_query needs its argument in the order they have, but 
db_query_range has another order, which is very confusing. db_query_range 
should be changed, and every query that uses it. It's only 21, but I do not 
feel an urge to go and correct them. Eventually, I will do it. But 
what will happen with the function calls which are in the thousands?
