comment Should UTF-16 be considered harmful?
@ncoghlan, I would appreciate if you formulate the text to insert. Also, if you are into Python - it's high time to write to Python authors to change their internal string implementation to the better, UTF-8 way.

comment Which language features are considered harmful?
"fool-proofness" has no value? Every manager knows he will have morons or drunk programmers working on his code at some point.
