The answer is obvious, simple, and wrong.

I'm talking about languages I've had *LOTS* of practice in.
I may be an academic, but I spend a lot of time reading and
writing code.  And not enough time writing papers, sigh.
But at least when I talk to students about programming I am talking about
something I put a good deal of time into.

In the last year I wrote about 30 kSLOC.

I've had responses from practitioners that they see the same
problem.
