Aehmmm... there is:
- a BIG FAT WARNING in the GUI, extra windows

If people cannot *read* then I cannot change anything.

The major difference between a thing that might go wrong
and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a
thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually
turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.
