Why do we want this? Developer Sanity.

define: Sanity

"the ability to think and behave in a normal and rational manner"

When developers deviate from rationality weird shit happens. Weird things which no-one else understands. Weird stuff which sends the next developer off the course of sanity - and so the cycle continues.
