(hoping that since Keith used the word, you won't think this is off-topic, which it is...)  

Have you guys read the "Manifesto of the Futurist Programmers"?

HOOO-YEAH!  Now there's a MANIFESTO!  Too bad they're biased against objects... in the "Futurist Programming Notes" (http://www.graficaobscura.com/future/index.html) they have these humorous definitions:
	- structured programming = slow
	- modular = bloated
	- extensible = late
	- reusable = buggy
	- object-oriented = slow and bloated and late and buggy

I can't blame them too much, thinking of the state of pigs like Eclipse 15 years after they penned their manifesto.  But, I have a feeling that they'd sympathize with Ian's COLA.
