That would be deciding (a, b, a) should be (a, b).

You write your replies so fast that i somehow doubt you even thought 
about it.

If you still don't get it, ask me in irc instead of chatting here, thx.


Small example:
server.modules += ( "mod_proxy" )

server.modules += ( "mod_auth", "mod_proxy" )

- you really want mod_auth to be loaded before mod_proxy, but your 
algorithm would load mod_proxy before mod_auth.
