Yeah I think your onto something here... the speed boost was added later on to help the human player. I remember Dino telling me this on his IRC channel one time..
So PBC is a by-product!! much like
Slag ( from ore refinning )
Sludge and Manure!
If I remember correctly, someone said that when Dino was confronted with PBD for the first time, his initial response was "I didn't program that!".
Was he in fact shown the ball going though the player case? If yes, he was sort of correct, except for this side-effect of boosting the human player's speed.
So, the bug is the ball going through the player, while PBD itself is an intensional(?) feature!
