So you're saying that you don't like it because you don't trust it?

Reading that sentence, the phrase "pay no attention to the man behind
the curtain" came to mind. ;-) Being of the crusty old programmer with a
small brain pan persuasion, I fear what magic lays behind it. It may be
elegantly expressed, but the final form often ends up as a horrible Rube
Goldberg mess. Its probably just professionally working in debuggers and
hanging around compiler people that makes me gunshy.
