visited here enough I decided I should stay..

I like the meta-discussions that have been taking place here. They've resonated nicely with some chats I've had at work on the overall Software process and how to herd developers into doing the Right thing instead of the short-term expedient thing. Evil thoughts like rigging the compiler to produce random errors when they do things I want to discourage (e.g. large variables on the stack), so as to build up this culture of fear that keeps them in line without silly stuff like code reviews or coding guidelines.

Of course, then I realize that would be evil, and I back out my changes. But I can always dream.. :)
