Interesting point.

However I think that good developers who are on the lookout for it can flag constructs which they understand but they think others might not. Furthermore good developers are more apt to notice the maintainance implications of seemingly innocuous constructs. Therefore if you have good developers who are concious of these points, and who have exposure to what others know (eg through assisting in training, answering questions, etc), I think they can take into account the bottom half in considering maintainability for code reviews.

But still I have to wonder at the value of doing a modified usability study to find maintainability implications. Take code from programmer A, hand it to programmer B, and have experienced observer C take notes as B talks through trying to figure out A's code...

UPDATE
Inserted an important "not" that Corion caught.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
