comment Explanation of two of Lehman's Laws of Software Evolution
Granted that the goals of an Agile project can change as the project moves along, but a project has some definite goal in mind (in the eyes of the stakeholders). One those goals are met, and a system has been created, it will still evolve. If it is a useful system, its lifetime can be measured in years, and over the years different stakeholders may sponsor additional projects to add more features, and also some team will be tasked with the ongoing ownership of the projects (bug fixes, technology roadmapping, etc. It is this evolution that Lehman's laws is covering, not the initial project.

How much research have you done on this. Wikipedia has a good page on sorting algorithms (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sorting_algorithm).

Why do you thing that "almost all programmers" have moved to using exception handling for I/O?

comment Explanation of two of Lehman's Laws of Software Evolution
Nice answer, but I don't think that agile project is entirely appropriate, because a the term project is used to describe something that has a defined goal. Lehman's laws take over once the system has been created and deployed. The modern buzz-word that I think most closely describes this law is DevOps.
