To me, as both a user *and* a coder, this is a pretty silly statement to make. When
I, or anyone else for that matter, is using a program, what do *I* care what the
code looks like as long as the product works well? Answer, I don't. Neither do users.
Even if I did look at the code and found it disgusting, it is highly unlikely I would
stop using the product just because I found it ugly, especially when there is no
useable alternative in its league to compare to.
