There's another programming language whose name begins with P, whose primary
philosophy is demonstrated in the well-known phrase"

    "There's More Than One Way to Do It"

This means that it's more difficult to establish recognisable programming
idioms, because for every task there are between three and seventeen ways to
accomplish it, and the choice is usually made on efficiency grounds rather
than those of program readability.
