this was my point. the end result is qualified by asking the question: "does your app solve the problem?". I'm sure you know this, but I'm pointing this out for any interested 3rd party. If the answer is "yes", than who cares what you wrote it in (to a degree).

I mean you're still going to need to find where the variable is assigned a value if there is a problem with the value. so you'll still be searching the same code.
true, but it just makes it that much more difficult.
