That's part of the reason I like it. When someone says "that's not
pythonic" they mean "you're not adhering to python dogma." When someone
says "that's not suckless," it literally translates to "that sucks more
than it should." There's no real dogma, it's just a way to identify
shitty solutions to problems.
