Indeed. Sorry for having disseminated FUD. My only defense is that it had been a while since I read Apo4 and I had forgotten about PRE and POST blocks.
One question that I couldn't answer from my (quick) reappraisal of Apo4. Is there any intent that PRE & POST blocks will be "turn-offable" (with apologies to the BG ads) via command line switch or other similar mechanism?
