I think you both are correct - IIRC our editor was/is an author and there's a Monty Python reference.

I must say, I do admire our editor's integrity in this matter.

There are many cases where admitting you are wrong and suggesting a punishment preempts
someone else suggesting a more suitable punishment. I'm suggesting flogging is a suitable
punishment. Well, not really, I was just caught up in the entertainment value of a good
flogging. 

In reality, writing is a severe form of self-flagellation and I am grateful our editor
subjected himself to it. I first bought the Second Edition of Lunux Device Drivers, bought the
Third Edition as soon as I saw it was out, and will buy the Fourth Edition as soon as I learn
of its existence.
