comment Automatic source code generation — good idea or potential nightmare?
"If you find a problem with the generated source" - you need to be able to debug it, then. So you need to attach the generated source. I'm not saying that you will fix it my modifying the generated source (that's stupid), but you need to see the generated source.

comment Are C++ templates just a kind of glorified macros?
"but it is severely limited as there is no access from that language to the underlying C++ environment." -- What does it mean? I tried to parse this statement, but failed.

comment Programmers doing testing
You may have tests which do not bring much value, are always out of date, but on the other hand incur maintenance costs and impose design constraints. Then it is a bad method of testing.
