I find it interesting that readability is regarded as something only
pointy-headed academics are interested in, and uninteresting in the
real world of commercial software.
In my experience, code that is not "aesthetically pleasant" is
guaranteed to have this property; only its author can find the bugs.
This is of course not a problem for a hobbyist, or perhaps even a
compiler writer. But it is the mother of bad software products.
