tribbles2>"Which would you prefer - safe operation, or potentially dangerous?"

Personally I'd prefer *safe* - but guess what when people find that a fair proportion of their legacy code *won't* work because of an AIF check (where such software worked for many years before) - and that that software is no longer updated (and therefore will *NEVER* run with such checking) then people may wish to disable such checking.

Short answer ROL own Select but *PEOPLE* own their computers. And a computer that can't run the software you need is *useless*. It would (IMHO) be prudent for ROL to make the check one that is an *opt in* for users (that is users must *explicitly enable it*). Bearing in mind that the USER is then responsible if things DO explode. It could even be stated as such.
