I am terribly sorry that this blows your mind.
This wasn't a metaphor. This was an example how testing is done in other
languages. Writing VHDL code is the same C++ code. It needs testing. All
I did was trying to find a real advantage for all this branching stuff.

If narrow mindedness and the failure of thinking out of the box is the
git way, then let me quote you: "--> yeah, thanks but no thanks."
