re: Is “Defensive Programming” actually healthy? VIEW POST


Lack of foresight is unfortunately not a bug.

And objectively speaking, adding more to the solution would add complexity that only might' be needed, or at least is not needed now.

In my experience these types of debates often waste more time/resources then simply changing it later when it becomes relevant would have.

(Tho IMHO in this case it just comes off a bit lazy to not add the suggestion, if we can say with high probability that we would have more signal types in the future.)
