Intended by whom? Good, me? I do not see the situation that black, if
it will turn out to be cancer, why is that C not death.
Yes, of course there are some cracks trying to write a program which
gives the program back to stdout in reverse order, but who matters?

I was not that careful with my writelns (at age 20...). Especially if I
was looking for some bug there was a lot of copy and past.
