Yep, that's the additional reason why I leave it in reverse.
BTW, the $aab 900 does not even let you remove the key from the ignition lock
without forcing you to put in reverse first. Not that I advocate this quirk...,
in fact quite the opposite. Sometimes you have to be able to manually spin the
wheels in neutral and there's no force on Earth that will make me climb under
the car on the stands with the ignition key _not_ laying on the floor.
