      So, what happens the first time someone tries to use the tool and it
      completely screws up their code because they fall into that 10%? There
      is a place for 90% effectiveness and there's a place that requires
      100% effectiveness. Any function of an application that will be used
      on a regular basis or that is advertised as a major reason to use the
      application needs to work more than 90% of the time. Preferably, it
      works 99.9% of time, or better. Otherwise, you lose mindshare, and
      then what's the point?
