Most naive script writers learn by watching others and don't complain as
long as there is a way to make things work.  They can survive in filth (bad
design) and harsh conditions (no tools) and tend to be avid rumormongers
(share tricks).

On the other hand, we tend to act like horrified interior decorators when
faced with clashing colors.  <g>
