I'm all for adaptation, I'm just hesitant to adapt it wholeheartedly
because I expect that it will have such a big impact on coding
practices.  I want to have a better feel for what that impact is and
whether it is altogether healthy.  IOW I'm a bit worried that
adaptation might become too attractive of a hammer for all sorts of
problems, whether or not there are better-suited solutions.
