comment At what point do immutable classes become a burden?
As an aside, I commonly use "set-once" fields in classes where the class needs to be "fairly" immutable, but not completely. I find this solves the problem of huge constructors, but provides most of the benefits of immutable classes. (namely, your internal class code not having to worry about a value changing)

comment Licensing for code that I find in forums or on SO?
in the long run, it doesn't really matter. They posted the code on their site to help people. I don't think they're going to go out and sue the people they were trying to help

+1 for asking questions. This is surprisingly an amazing way to teach. I can't remember where the article is, but somewhere a teacher taught a bunch of 1st graders binary addition and subtraction by asking only questions.
