   This is exactly my point. One problem I have always had with my own
   code is running off the end of arrays. This usually caused the progam
   to blow up somewhere else. I used to get into endless change, compile,
   run, crash - damn - where is that bug? loops. Now, with Ada, I can squash
   that bug early. And many more besides...

I believe this situation is an example of the principle of least surprise,
which I attribute to John Goodenough, but I could be wrong on both counts.
