| erik naggum has a great page about worse-is-better and it makes sense to
| me.

  let me hasten to add that this is Richard Gabriel's work, not mine.  it
  was floating around as LaTeX source when I got my hands on it, and I
  thought it would be important to make it more widely available.  (and
  Richard didn't even frown when I told him face to face, so I guess it's
  OK as far as it goes, but please don't forget who really wrote this.)
