Re: Changing preposition specifiers

Changing the order is bad, because that will turn "look foo in bar" into "look
foo with bar" or something.  However, adding prepositions will not be a problem
(unless you want portable code) because of some wierd code in
$code_utils:_fix_preps().  You can look at it, but I'm sure that this is one of
the most obfuscated ways of counting to 15 :)

After you recompile and restart the server, eval $code_utils:_fix_preps(), and
it will dig up the new preps and stick them into the database.
