Now I'm not buying into the argument on either side, but it does remind
me of a lovely quote by Australian programming legend Alan Kennington:

        Eiffel is some sort of avant-garde French computing
        movement which believes that programming is reactionary
        and oppressive.  Instead, they see the future of computing
        as lying in broad strokes of the mouse to communicate
        the software developer's creative desires.  The Eiffel
        system then writes a program for the computing artist.
        As is typical of French ideas, Eiffel appeals to those
        sections of the middle class eho can't remember what
        work was like, and don't particularly want to be reminded.
