       I think it's simply if you're going to work in a language the 
thought of all those millions of (supposedly) extra keystrokes you'll 
have to type over time (COBOL, anyone?).  Of course the prospective 
programmer's thought doesn't take into account the idea that your 
programs might actually be shorter overall... :-)
