    try {
    be clever;
    } catch(e: Error) {

    > Error: cannot find symbol `be`

    meh... it depends. If you never try to be clever you will never find potential places that could be optimised. However premature optimisation and wrong abstractions are evils. it's about making that judgement call. In short I'd rather try to be clever about being clever!

    “Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.”

    this is so true. the more clever I try to be, the more I am humbled.
    I guess I am not the most clever, but still, easy does it !

    @manrock007 'don't' is counted as two words by NaNo standards, which is also my standard. :)
