The taboo engineeering technique is Tony's insistance that Data Flow
Diagarams (DFDs) are the only technique in the who wide world that
produces valid technical documentation (and he's the only writer in
the whole wide world that uses it) and he's been given so much flack
for it on the list that HE has declared that technique taboo to
discuss. The rest of us have no problem with discussing it....we just
won't fall into lockstep with him. :-)
