Notable Quotes

"Would you really merge a bunch of huge cleanups that would potentially break tons of stuff in subtle ways because coding style is that important? I'm done with that myself. I've merged too many half-baked cleanups and new features in the past and ended up spending way more time fixing them than I would have otherwise for relatively little gain."
