There are a number of serious difficulties in providing a
generally acceptable definition of "process". These are akin
to the difficulties faced by the philosopher who would answer
"what is life?" We will be in good company if we brush the more
subtle points lightly aside.
-- John Lions, in his commentary on the Unix v6 source
"The software is intended to be as unobtrusive, unintrusive and
unconstraining as possible. In software as elsewhere, good
engineering is whatever gets the job done without calling attention to
itself." -- Cynbe ru Taren, on Citadel (http://zork.net/cit/citadel.txt)
