Nah... I've seen the latest CVS and it's getting too damn complicated to fit
all in my little mind. I wanted to have something simple when I started, and
now it's way out of my hands... (I am not saying that it's not a BEAUTIFUL
piece of code, I'm just saying that it's damn complicated)...

Stylebook as it is right now is probably even more complicated, (since
there's not one line of docs!) but its aim was to be simple...

I believe it's the same thing that happened when James Duncan Davidson wrote
ANT and then, after leaving the project for some months, when he got back,
he found the whole thing a HUGE thing, far from the simple idea where it all
started off :) :) :)
