Jef Claes: Not handling edge cases, making them explicit instead

Jef Claes: Not handling edge cases, making them explicit instead: "There is this misconception that because we now have computers, they should solve all our problems, even all the edge cases.

By making edge cases explicit, we allow a human to intervene, and decide on the best solution for the problem."
