I thought that enforcing=0 was considered a better option, no, as it

Xander: Okay, this is starting to grate my cheese.  These
woods aren't that big. Now, I know we've beein going straight because
I've been following the North Star.
Willow: Xander, that's not the North Star.  It's an airplane.
Xander: No, that's not an airplane.  That's definitely...a blimp. But I
can see how one would make that airplane mistake.
