      It's a habit some programmers like to get into, because in C or Java if you
      forget one of the '=' signs by mistake you get a compile-time failure rather
      than a runtime error.

      This doesn't apply in JavaScript, of course, though you're at least
      guaranteed an obvious runtime error rather than a subtle one.
