Badly. IMHO, of course.

I can only hope that any system that might be put in won't get in the
way of building real managed binaries easily.

it's  a matter of balance, i find.  if you write the code without thinking
through the design you are doomed, except for very trivial tasks.  if you think
through the design, and think, and think, and never code then you may have had
fun but don't end up with a program.            -- Bruce Ellis, on 9fans
