I also agree with Freshmeat's point of view. But if someone is posting
his/her util/program for the first time as an inexperienced programmer, in the used programming language i.e. C, and it is trivial, explain him/her why it is so.
In my opinion it gives more understanding for the programmer whom's program has been rejected.
Also I agree with making a freshbone app-index for software written by inexperienced programmers.
I'm one of those inexperienced C programmers, have only assembly
language (68HC11, Z80 and 68K) experience.
