Nice statement! Now where did I see it?? Let me see...
I see next to it some others:

- Beautiful is better than ugly.
- Explicit is better than implicit.
- Simple is better than complex.
- Complex is better than complicated.
- Readability counts.
- If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.

How do each of these apply when comparing
a. A program that defaults to passing and returning data structures and
   uses print in a very controlled way

b. A program that randomly mixes call/return with input/print
