I would imagine most of id.c. Not a lot, just tedious little
mathematics and conditionals that have been known to pop up a bug from
time to time as it is. But...

Not the point. The point is that I posed a problem to the list:

   Every blue seat I buy for my auditoreum has a stupid red stain on
   it. I can either a) fix the machine that makes the chairs so it no
   longer puts that stain there, or b) each time I install a new seat,
   patch up the stained area.

What did I get back from the list as a response?

   Why aren't you decorating in red in the first place?
