thanks, paul.

if i understand correctly, questions about "about how intricate [an]  
algorithm [is] (this affects its difficulty of implementation and  
understanding)" are also fair and deserve fair answers.

again, if i understand correctly, this issue gets its share of  
attention in computer sciences, and cs teachers discuss it in class,  
passing along their own appreciation of it to their students.
