Come on alex this is what roel called Solution-Oriented.
No need for design, just make it work. Solution-Oriented this is the
future: no XP, no test, no process, no design, just the solution. Go
for Solution-Oriented Programming.
We should really propose a serious workshop on Solution-Oriented
PS: You should have told us what Utilities pointOrNilFrom: '2,6' does
Because this is obscure to me.
