Am I a bad developer for letting implementation considerations affect user interface decisions ("okay this is kind of awkward but it makes for more elegant code")?

@ayo no. You're a good developer, who has seen The Way of Unix.

@Wolf480pl But how do I convince users of The Way of Unix?

@ayo you wait until they see that this way is less buggy, more predictable, and easier to understand how it works inside

@Wolf480pl

But, but... most users will pick pretty and convenient over bug-free and predictable anytime!

@ayo @Wolf480pl You're a professional, users aren't. Don't doubt your choices:

@Wolf480pl No. Which means those users can't flock to alternatives and have to put up with my crap. And I with them. :blobsmilesweat:
