comment Is there a common programming term for the problems of adding features to an already-featureful program?
A bad design definitely exacerbates the problem, but even with a good design, things eventually get "crowded" and therefore more difficult to modify or extend without stepping on someone/something's toes. I'm looking for an expressive shorthand for that; maybe creeping featurism is it. (I wasn't necessarily intending Los Angeles to be an example of a bad design, rather a non-trivial, long-established, heavily-in-use, 'crowded' design)

Btw you can also do it the other way, where the user thinks of a number and the program tries to guess it.
