We do try to pave the cowpaths (without giving the biggest herds undue  
influence, or falling into other such traps -- I get lost driving  
around Boston, I hear it's cuz they paved the cowpaths back a century  
or two).

You may remember us from such reality-inspired movies as "Attack of  
the /[/]/ Killer RegExps" and "Don't throw for(i in null) from the  
Train". :-/
