Right. I think the point is that the first step toward managing
complexity is to decompose the complex problem into simpler
I think time has proven that in general, fine-grained, composable
solutions are more easily understood, and more flexible than
The trick, of course, is getting the atoms right so that when
they are mixed together, the result isn't explosive!
