    There is, indeed, a special place in hell for devs. who 'Stringly type' everything where whatever standard is being used supports a better-fit type. It's laziness combined with stupidity, because its sets the project up on a trajectory of painstaking, bug-prone type conversions everywhere at the point of use. If it's an external system, you rationalise on the way in, convert on the way out. Make your own App an oasis of type purity. The amount of that shit I've cleaned up in my time...
