      Nicely put. I have that goal for myself as well, and sometimes
      I even achieve it. OTOH, if I'm trying to communicate and my
      choice of language fails to connect with other folks, I find
      it's usually more useful for me to adapt my language rather
      than trying to stretch their level of acceptance. Of course,
      the latter would be more convenient for me... if it worked...

      I think it's good for programs and people to be generous in the
      variations of input they will accept while putting fewer demands
      on the generosity of those who must process their output.
