good code brings along with it. Am I wrong?

Heck no. I hope I didn't sound like I was saying otherwise. The thing that bugs the heck out of me is exactly these issues of robustness, there's always another gotcha. It would be fantastic to be able to make things bullet proof right out of the gate, but that seems to be considered an accretion to be learned later on. Mind, anyone who puts newlines in filenames should be burned at the stake, it's sick and twisted. Bart will know how such things were ever permitted in the first place. Mere anarchy was loosed upon the world.
