Comment 49 for bug 261595

Hi Irving, thanks for the review.
For some reason I did not get/read the notification email from Mozilla.
I, too, noticed that there are other places which would deserve attention and use of a similar function. However, I would prefer this patch to go through first, and that we make another bug to (1) identify those code segments/files, (2) discuss the appropriate solution for each and, then, (3) write a patch, which I can help with.
So I would ask for this patch to go through as is, since you indicated it is ok.
