aren't statistics limited to the statistics used?, statistics like overconsumption...
 
Sure, all abstractions leak. Leaking less is better than leaking more, and being aware of leaks is better than not being aware of them.

I like the idea of declarative programming, but I think it's good to discuss where it breaks down, or where we're not being as declarative as we think.
 
+John Cook I agree. My previous comment comes from a broken heart. The heart broken by seeing beautiful ideas break in front of my eyes and the ugliness popping its head :)

I really doubt that we will ever be able to fit our beautiful abstractions on the machine without being painfully aware of its inner workings and constraints.
