"banning extension developers from using obfuscated code"
That's me out then. Most of the time I re-visit my own code I spend hours staring at a line wondering "WTF does this do????"
Where other coders are concerned? Furgeddaboutit!
(BTW, I cannot change the flow of time simply by slapping my car into reverse - at least not without some minor changes to the engine. Please stop using the marketfreak newspeak "moving forward" phrase in place of the more appropriate "in the future" or similar terms! The article writer my be a yank and thus somewhat linguistically-challenged, but El Reg should be better than this coming from ol' Blighty!)
