Less is More

Blaine Buxton makes an often discounted observation...

Removing code means you are simplifying the code and the result is a net gain. So, next time, you're refactoring and deleting code. Don't think of it as deleting, but as gaining code via simplicity.
Blaise Pascal is quoted as saying...
I have made this letter longer than usual, because I lack the time to make it short.

Heck yeah.. a lot of the recent development I've been doing to PyObjC have resulted in a net loss in code, but a net gain in features. That's definitely the best.
