Given that it's common in Andrew's postings to see him describing folks whom
he seems to believe don't agree with his views as "whiners", "wimps", etc, I
find this an astounding sentence. It makes me wonder whether he pays
attention to his own rantings.

I have yet to see ANY project that succeeded (or, admittedly, failed) solely
by the efforts of the mythical technical hero. The success came from many
folks toiling long hours under lousy conditions because some technical
egomaniac decided he "didn't need no stinkin process." Most of the pain and
suffering I have seen in my professional life has been created by those
egomaniacs and never once, either during the project or after, was any of it
proved necessary. (Unless of course, "necessary" means ensuring the
technical hero never gets his feathers ruffled).
