Back in the 80's and 90's, when I was a strong advocate of OOP in 
general and Smalltalk in particular, I continually ran into the 
obstacle I came to think of as the IASFBSIDHTTT syndrome: I Am So Far 
Behind Schedule I Don't Have Time To Think. Whether dealing with 
in-house or out-house (never did like that "in-house" thing!) 
developers, the problem was the same: even if you could prove 
absolutely that this new language was more powerful and effective than 
my current tool set, I don't have time to evaluate it, learn it, and 
rebuild all my libraries and tools in it.
