Well we write a lot of unit tests and I personally find that the dynamic
typing helps one write unit tests quickly.  So most of the things that
static type checking gives you are covered by intention-driven testing,
which seems like a more powerful combination than [static_typing,
no_unit_testing].

Of course [static_typing, lots_of_unit_tests] is pretty hard to fight.

Hmm....
