There seems to be an unchallenged assumption within the developer community 
that developers themselves are somehow removed from the sickly, festering, 
encrusted teat of marketing and that there is a form of purity to what they 
do because it's code.

If one use one's skills in any way to enhance the unit-shifter pipeline, you 
are just a different-shaped tool in the toolkit.

T-shirts just happen to be more visible than a well-written piece of C++.
