  Thus is is writ:

  ..

  21. Yea, even though my program hath no errors, I say unto you that
verily verily thy neighbours program shalt thy program crasheth.

  22. Thus go thou and may it me done that thy program shall not it's
address space mixether with ye others programs, and let it be done that
thou program shall talk in many tongues to all the programs of the world.

  23. And thus there will be great rejocing and singing in the streets and
dancing, and celebration, and consuming of Freakstones old undrinkable
mixtures.

  24. And they  that do not heed  my world -  yea I say unto  you that
their programs shall  crasheth, not worketh and be  delivered lateth -
and  there will  be much  nashing of  teeth, bearing  of  breasts, and
dispare throghout the land.

  Nebelkenizer Book 4 Chap 14 verses 21-24.
