Something that I think gets lost in this mad rush to find the smallest most obscure code to solve a problem is that often you're sacrificing error-checking along the way. In the real world, I place much more emphasis on Doing the Right Thing than in brevity.
I applaud you for this. I wish more people followed your lead.
