I don't want to repeat myself. Nothing is wrong.
I didn't delete it, I moved it. (I wonder if I need to put this in
font size 100, red color, and make it <blink>).
At least one problem with comments in files is that, when you
are looking at the documentation in xmldocs, you first read
the information in the proper place (under DESCRIPTION or NOTES
section), and then when you scroll down to see tag source code,
you see it in there again. There's nothing appealing or
value-adding in it.
And if you tried to use qb_safe (or anything else) without reading
the docs, and learn from a 3-line comment that
"QB will crash at the drop of a hat", then you've got bigger
problems than documentation anyway.
