What’s wrong with FileMaker feature requests.

I think this quote finally gets at what bugs me about so many FileMaker feature requests–the long lists of things that would somehow make one’s life as a developer easier:

Programmers are obsessed with ease rather than simplicity (thank you Rich Hickey for making this point); or, what t
he experience of programming is
instead of what
the resulting program is like
. This leads to useless conversations about semicolons and whether we need a preprocessor that eliminates curly braces. We still talk about programming as if typing in the code was the hard part. It’s not – the hard part is maintaining the code.

From here; emphasis mine.
