Well, having done hardware support for more years than I care to count, in this case
and the others that brought that question to mind were cases in which the desire was
fully and clearly expressed.  And, the question being asked wasn't of the variety of
"do you want this or this?" or "can you explain a bit more of what you want?".  It
was "why do you want to do that?".

I suppose it may just be a case of "curiosity" and it is then incumbent on the person
being asked to decide if they wish to answer. 

Just strikes me as odd when these types of questions are asked with no apparent
benefit to resolving the original question.
