"Ooh, it's February. Time to update my latest financial reports. Let's
see, what page was that again? Oh, right, node/34. Hey, where'd the edit
tab go? Oh shit. My financial reports are gone? They were supposed to
be visualized yesterday! Fuck, fuck, fuck. Quick, someone find me six
hours to hunt down and discover what the hell happened to my edit tab!"
... chx responds with the inevitable ...
"Ah, there's the edit tab. *click*. What's this? My code has been moved
into pages/34.inc? I have no access to that! I'm just a lowly financial
manager who knows how to plug numbers into a function call! I have no
FTP access! These were supposed to be visualized yesterday! Fuck, fuck,
fuck. Quick, someone find me six hours to hunt down and discover the IT
person so he can create me an FTP account, install FTP software on my
machine, teach me how to use it, and abuse me for trying to edit the PHP
in Microsoft Word!"

Fair enough - I'll agree with that.
