the reason for hiding certain files is presentation to the majority of the 
masses... 99.999% of users don't need or want to know about these files... they 
only care that their stuff works and that they can easily find what they are 
looking for without having to dig through a lot of what they would generally 
consider cruft and fluff... programmers and others interested in the 
nitty-gritty details are very much a minority

PS: i'm replying to both, the list and Bo, because the synacor mail server seems 
to be blocked by some spam lists... synacor hosts email for numerous ISPs... 
windstream moved to synacor a few years ago rather than continuing to host their 
own email servers... it is a painful annoyance when legitimate services like 
synacor get blocked like this :(

PPS: Bo, if you reply, please include the above PS when you reply to the list so 
that the list manager(s) can see this and maybe they can/will whitelist the 
synacor servers... i've had several postings get blocked in recent days because 
of this problem...
