  • Are you suggesting that the popularity of templates in C++ indicates that something's horribly wrong with its typing system? I could be persuaded to agree, especially with the push for genericity in Java. :)

    It's interesting to hear some of the more recent XP ideas about code generators. I think it was Alistair Cockburn's Agile Programming book that suggested the master programmers should write code generators and the rest of us should customize the output as appropriate. (That sounds like a horrible misquote; I can find the correct reference if you'd like.)
