@mouviciel: I think there are at least a few useful languages out there that make side-effects very difficult, and try to relegate them to Monads.

comment Application / Code reviews for lone programmers?
@Cam: "getting a 10-year-old to agree with you that the house is structurally sound" isn't necessarily the goal. The goal here may be to organize and distill your thoughts to prove that your idea is simple and sound enough to work. Evaluating the structural stability of a house is a significantly different problem than architecting or implementing a program (though it may be similar to writing a formal proof for a program. No, I wouldn't have a 5 year old help me with that).
