What's with the name, where'd "Augustus" and "Gusto" come from?

Isn't it obvious? Augustus "Gusto" Gummi, the character voiced by Rob Paulsen in Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears.

Why didn't you just use Jekyll?

Because I don't want to.

PHP 5.4 isn't widely deployed yet!

That's not really a question, and also it's irrelevant as this is intended to be run on your workstation and not on the server.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
