in thread scope of "use strict"? (needed: "superstrict")

In my experience, people dont 'design' modules to only work without strictures. More typically, they dont 'use strict' because, and I quote, 'you just end up with lots of annoying lines getting in the way' (I had an experience somewhat like that today - the developers had a huge script with everything as a global. And to top it all, I gave him a function to do some parsing, which promptly broke when he removed all the 'my's' in front of the lexical variables. A stern talking-to then ensued).

...it is better to be approximately right than precisely wrong. - Warren Buffet

[Corion]: marto: Redoing something on new infrastructure sounds fun. At least you can reuse your previous experience :)
[marto]: I'm looking forwads to it. The video sources are dying, and they don't have the hardware to play them back (old tape formats, not just VHS + Laserdisc etc)
[marto]: I'll be interested to see what difference in terms of file size/quality the new codecs make. I enjoy working on things like this, so that's a bonus
[Corion]: Ah, cool! So it's not an inhouse youtube but for a wider consumption
[marto]: last time it was IE6 clients, now they're on 11, so more scope there also, in terms of UI and playback
[marto]: in house as in Company network, not internet connected (power stations and the corporate HQs)
[Discipulus]: new Monsignor party! free beverages and pizza for all you monks! and a big thanks for the patience you deserved me during these years
