Apparently, My Work Scares Guido

From a recent article on Guido's blog:
And the word middleware (just like much of Phillip Eby's work, alas) scares me.
Apparently, however, I'm not the only one:
I saw the last entries about Nevow (a templating system in Twisted) and it scared the hell out of me.
So I guess that means Donovan and friends are scarier than I am. :)

Sometimes people think that it's a compliment when Guido says things like that, but I find it frustrating, especially since his feedback tends to be like the infamous Emperor's remarks to Mozart: it's good, he seems to be saying, but there are just too many notes. I say this not to compare myself to Mozart, but only to point out that the feedback similarly communicates only a vague displeasure, with no clear path to improving anything. Ah well.
