Oh my god.  I thought I would get a laugh checking this link, but the
feeling I had instead was more like terror :(

I had flashbacks from when I had to write a COBOL program that had varying
memory requirements.  I was happy to find and use an "experimental dynamic
memory allocation" library, but then had to rip it back out again when the
project manager said, "I don't understand that."  I bet that same bastage is
making some poor programmer use cobolscript now.  Oh my god.
