^r is realized with the functions you mention. Not having them
means not having ^r.

If you see the subtle differences, you know why there are
different versions. Just pick the one which you like best.

Unless you are Swiss (they are allowed, by law, to append "oder"
to every sentence ;), appending "lol", "heh" or similar is annoying
to most people.
You are, of course, entitled to your own style, but generally
speaking, I have found that seemingly little things like that can
make a difference.

Point in case, I almost did not send this reply due to the "heh".
It might seem petty, but at least I am being honest. _And_ I
took the time to explain it in depth.
