Yes, otherwise copy 'n paste is like the old definition of a
university lecture: a means of transferring the lecturer's notes to
the student's notes without passing through the brain of either.
Jim mentioned the snippets site - I tried to transfer stuff from the
wiki and give appropriate credit/license, but the process would be
much more credible if people did this themselves.
