Never did. Has anyone done that ever?

Any level of compatibility we can reach without sacrificing limbs is a 
good thing but personally I'd put InsidePro in parens. Not because it's 
inherently bad, I just haven't ever looked at it. Is it better than #cat 
and JtR in any way? Is it free in any way? If not, who pays for it? 
And... why? Does it even run on serious hardware? I'm not suggesting 
anything, I just do not know.

If you decrease "should" to "could", I say "aye". Please do.
