Re: Orthogonality is Pretentious

+1. Without lists most things feel like you've got tunnel vision-- add in inherited project/framework or critical bug anxiety, and kiss the 'curl up with a good algorithm' vibe goodbye. Give me the table of contents, index, glossary. :-) I expect this is one of the major reason folks hate wiki's and love weblogs. Nothing so comforts a newbie as dir(), auto-complete and an object diagram.
