In my contributions, it has been my practice to write an "#include" line 
automatically to the debug stream.  While I haven't gotten any feedback 
over this practice, it is starting to annoy me, the author!  The 
messages just add clutter to my #debug output.

Going forward, I plan to use View_POV_Include_Stack such that these 
notices are suppressed by default, as is done with the standard include 
files.  Several Object Collection modules already do this.  (As this 
identifier is defined in a standard include file and referenced by most, 
I would not consider the lack of a prefix to be a violation of the 
naming standards; and in fact, using the prefix would complicate matters 
for a user taking advantage of this practice.)

So my question to myself is, is it worth updating all 13 of my modules 
in one shot, or should I just make this change to each module as I 
update them over time?  Some of my modules I have no further plans for, 
so this would be the only change, aside from some possible minor tweaks.

Does anyone care?
