... and the interesting thing is, that ability to discern ab initio what's going to be broadly flexible and extensible is such a high-level analytical skill that for practical purposes it's something like intuition - like how good chess players work, where you can only go so far with techniques, but at some point you need to have the mysterious "it" that you get by being cool to start with and then working and working and working. If you could bottle it, you could name your price.
