    What's the point of this? The design works, has lots of successful
    implementations, and isn't going to be changed. Hence, complaining
    serves no purpose; it's simply whining. Instead of wasting time on
    fruitless discussion, we should rather occupy ourselves with discussing
    things that are changeable and have a real need to be changed.
