On a loosely related note, see the article at
        http://archive.salon.com/21st/feature/1998/05/cov_12feature.html
titled "The dumbing-down of programming", and subtitled "Rebelling
against Microsoft, 'My Computer' and easy-to-use wizards, an engineer
rediscovers the joys of difficult computing."  The beginning is a bit
of a rant, but still "rediscovering the joys of difficult computing"
isn't a bad line for Caml :-)
