I have written some bad and unclear code in my time, and come to
regret it when I had to go back and fix it.  But I can honestly say
that I cam completely unable to see how you could claim that that code
was written with aim that anyone else would read it.   Let's not talk
too much about the dumb-user and dumb-developer, let's try and write
clear, well documented code with good test coverage.

Thank you  - that's helpful.

I wrote very little of NIPY; I spend most of my NIPY time reading and
working on other people's code.  It can be a pleasant experience and I
often learn a lot.  It's the only way we are going to get better as a
coding community, if we learn to learn from each other,

See you,
