I do of course add proper comments

I think the point is that its better not to have to comment at all. If the code looks like it does what it does then you dont need a comment. Plus comments get out of date sometimes and then cause confusion. I realize that a well chosen comment can be extremely useful, but I think you know what I mean.

*shrug* Its a nice trick though for some things. :-) Although Ive usually used it as named routine.
