I'm not entirely convinced of that: there is something akin to drop-dead
gorgeous code: code that is so well done that it would not matter with
regard to its maintenance whether or not its author dropped dead because
it's both done well as well as documented in a manner where the original
author could not offer significant additional help.

Of course I am a major proponent of this view because of being myself
somewhat differently endowed in the respective classes A and B, and so
having at least some sort of exchange rate between the two can, however
large the conversion fees, only benefit me...
