Some peoples debate about the existence of a 'soul'.
If there was such a thing, apps installed through Google Play would ask for permission to take control of it so it surely do not exists.
Look Wiley E. Coyote Super-genius Matlab guy, my GPU port of a tiny part of your "can't speed it up any more" script cut runtime by 48%. You find this "disappointing" and you could "speed it up by 100%" because you did a GPU port 5 years ago for a completely different problem in a different environment with a smaller dataset. So shaving almost a week off a 2 week run isn't worth merging, and you're on contract, getting paid by the day, and the contract ends when the final results are in...
I... hate... compatability.
I hate when software is bad because "changing it would break stuff".
Well fucking change it and have the stuff break and then fix that stuff. DON'T JUST LET STUFF BE BAD.
