Oh, I mentioned this in my first attempt to send out these patches
(which git send-mail threw away when it couldn't find an smtp server).
 I don't think it makes sense to go through the server and replace
existing linked list code.  That code is already written and tested,
and replacing it can only break stuff.  The patch was just meant to
illustrate how list.h easily pays for itself once you need to do
something more advanced than prepending or iterating through the list.
 You know, just in case Keith got tempted to rewrite more list.h users
to open coded lists.
