 FLAG DAY [from a bit of Multics history involving a change in the
       ASCII character set originally scheduled for June 14, 1966] n. A
       software change which is neither forward nor backward compatible, and
       which is costly to make and costly to revert. "Can we install
       that without causing a flag day for all users?"
