  • I don't think you've taken a controversial position at all there, you've hit the nail on the head.

    Modules should stay the hell out of your namespace and application except to do the things you've actually asked them to do.

    Warnings and logfiles: abso-bloody-lutely.

    If you break something, you need to be told about it once, not 5 million times.

    If someone else breaks something and doesn't pay attention that they're being told 5 million times, you don't want to find the 5 billion other messages first thing monday morning.

    It's a horrible horrible mess, and anything that makes it worse needs stomping on fast.
