I'm not making a proposal. I just stated my preference when I
said "Me, I prefer the immutable and functional approach". Now,
it might be worthwhile to invest some time in defending that.
Maybe I would, when time permits, but certainly not to someone
who starts going "Blech" the very moment he reads "immutable"
or "functional". ;)
