These are the "little things" that Drupal should be adopting from a  
usability standpoint. Why assume that only person will be admin? Why  
assume that #1 is the only one to get to the site while it's offline?

I have a friend, John Simon, who is a software artist and he has  
described coding as creative writing. If it is, I have a whole  
dissertation to write about Drupal's #1 user. The fact that it  
remains "god-like" and without a role .... we're slipping into  
Lacanian territory here.

Here's a good interview by John

Here's an example of software art, btw (the patriarchy at home is  
Mark Napier)

OK, back to lurking,
