Got your point , and I do understand "fuck" and "fucking" is so strong word
that it is really difficult to replace with something else.

But..but you suggestion to rewrite the comments sounds good Miquel ...wish I
could have that much time in hand to replace every sentence having that word
...all the patched sent with that word replaces...please step forward and make
and send patches .

Today I sent 10 patches replacing that word(weather that make sense or not)
you can see those in the ML ...please pick up as you wish and send patches.

I was simply replacing the word ..never bother about the meaning it
conveys..doesn't matter really.
