I have faith in Murphy.  Something will be missed in the spec.
Attempted implementations will make mistakes as well.  The
result will be some level of portability issues even if all
have good faith.  (I have no confidence that any Perl port to
C# done by Microsoft will be done entirely in good faith.  But
that is another issue.)

Depends who that someone is.  It might just be a 3 week project
investigating theories of how reusable components can speed up
development time. :-)
