Peter Saint-Andre spake unto us the following wisdom:

> Does Pidgin allow only [a-zA-Z0-9] or somesuch?

The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils]. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
-- Cesare Beccaria, "On Crimes and Punishments", 1764
