Does that prove that thinking is dangerous? ;)

Seriously, that's an interesting theory I might accept had I not
read somewhere in the last 10+ years in some of Id's literature.
Ask others who have been playing Id's games for awhile,
documents others who seem to recall the same thing I have.

Or maybe someone at Id knows. It's certainly different from
how Quake4 behaves in this regard. I'd love to see documentation
that proves I'm wrong, also.

Perhaps you can code a patch where normally the
original behaviour is preserved, unless a specific
newly-documented cvar is set.
