They are all very nice sentiments, but where in your experience did I suggest we ignore them?
It was a reply to Priyanshu, whose quote seemed associate me with "wheel rewriters".
In fact exactly what I was proposing was 'less change'. Less change of the data we are interested in, which would indeed be beautiful.
And my 12 bits JPEG low compress of huge semi-rendered scans are in turn multiscan JFIF full compliants. So encapsulate them in a very tiff right way tiled/stripped would be straightforward. ;-)))
I know who taylor was, and exactly what I'd do to his neck if he was still alive and walking down my street on a dark night. I think you've confused this with the guy who did things that were previously impossible -- what was his name...
Probably I confuse.
I intended "taylorisation" for the bad aspect of specialisation. ( in our case, little gain of efficiency for one job, for big loss of others potentialities ).
