Uche exposed the pitfalls of relying on wizards
Yup. Wizards should be a convenience not a substitute for a conceptual
model of what
is going on in any syntax. Wizards can be a seductive trap.
Its that human-readability thing again.
There is great value in human-readability. Jettison it, and you are on a
towards loosing ownership over your own conceptual models of your own data.
You many think you own it but you don't. You will be a slave to the tools
than the other way around.
Not good. Not good at all.
