That's a good point. maybe you could write a patch ;)

Actually, I like the phrases. I think they've pretty much gotten it down
to fully natural-language. "this thursday", "last monday", "3 days ago",
etc etc.

Does biff in bo work
coz it biffin doesn't beep
an if biff in bo is broke
then biff in bo I will delete

I've tried biff in bo with 'y'
I've tried biff in bo with '-y'
no biffin output does it show
so poor wee biff is gonna go.
