Modeswitched and command-line options only go so far.

The problem with this approach is that, if I see someone elses code, 
I still have the confusing code in front of my eyes.

Same with Generics and whatnot. 
It's correct that I don't use have to use them, but I am confronted 
with the ugly-as-hell syntax in other people's code all the time.

No amount of modeswitches can stop this proliferation of ugly constructs...
