All right. Let's talk about that.

When I write "print", it is both effortless and instantaneous : my
hands do not move, a wave goes through my fingers, it all happens in a
tenth of a second.

Contrast this with what one has to go through to catch the SHIFT key,
and then the "(" : move the left hand, press SHIFT, move the right
hand, aim "(", press, miss, press again. Same thing at the end of the
function call.

I know it sounds ridiculous, but it does *impair* my debugging
productivity. Taylor would agree.
