I understand the point you go on to make and it was a part of my concern at the 
time. But actually we move from "poor language design" to "good language 
design" and a need to understand the effects that language design has upon its 
users. My thesis was aimed at language designers and computer architects. It 
was not really targeted at programmers. Although I have no doubt that 
programmers will benefit from understanding the issues.    (03)
