Believe me, I've had plenty of experience of that.  If you truly aren't
going to need something, YAGNI is a huge win.  But there's no reason to

that there won't be hundreds more reports.

the opening of a Colonel Sanders in Beijing means   cowan@ccil.org
the end of Chinese culture? [...]  We have had      http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
Chinese restaurants in America for over a century,
and it hasn't made us Chinese.  On the contrary,
