Very few programmers are one with the Tao. Those who are rarely get to work
solely with others who are one with the Tao. Programs written by
development teams which are not wholly composed of developers who are
rooted in the Tao will virtually *never* gain the benefits of those members
who may be one with the Tao.

blows off your whole leg."
