But that's the thing. How would one ever learn to know where that 
dividing line is if all the learning material they see teaches 
them the opposite - to not know or care?

'Twas a simple task: traverse an array and print numbers out of 
it based on a predicate. That is all the original program did. 
How does doing (LOTS) more than that make any of it easier to 
understand, let alone equivalent to execute?

forkit says: "if I was writing millions of processes across 1000s 
of servers..." No. Just... no. If I've only ever written 
"convenient" pessimized code, I won't magically start lighting up 
those wasted transistors just because I got a new job. I'll just 
be writing the same "convenient" pessimized code, only it would 
now span 1000s of servers. Which is the exact effing situation 
that we're in already!
