That "works" for Windows but not Unix type platforms. The problem is that it
should be possible to specify the following common PREFIX values:


And, as those show, you can define the prefix such that the whole thing is

-- grafik - Don't Assume Anything
-- rrivera_at_[hidden] - grafik_at_[hidden]
-- 102708583_at_icq - Grafik666_at_AIM - Grafik_at_[hidden]
