What a strange reply. Clearly *some* abstractions are good, otherwise
we'd all be writing assembly. *How many* abstractions exactly is a
matter of contention and personal taste. But as soon as someone
slightly disagrees with you on a fairly minor point you resort to
insults and "bruh huh, not true suckless".

Frankly, these sort of comment are unbecoming of a serious programmer,
suckless or not.
