Amen. I was recently fighting with an example of a multi-client, simple
server that I wanted to translate into assembly. Not only was the code
unreadable, but they had tried to apply a functional programming technique
that failed miserably.
Final result: Less # of lines, better readability, and slightly more
algorithm efficient. Even with that change of language to something
Key idea: Choose a design wisely. Understand that if a design does not
enhance readability or code reusability, it's a bad design.
