In my experience, almost all programming languages I've used have
their own idiosyncracies.  I'm quicker to make certain type of errors
in some, and less in others, given the environments I program in.  
I've found that I tend to make some mistakes that are common, some are
just plain peculiar to me; and I almost never make some `common'
mistakes.  I believe we should not underestimate the subjective,
psychological, part of each programmer in its programming habits.
