To put it another way, at the end of every gig I want to be able to take
away work samples that I'd be pleased to show at an interview. I don't
want to be hedging or having to explain why I'm responsible for the
lucid overview in chapter 2 but not responsible for the horrible
blunders in chapters 3, 4 and 5. Even if true it just sounds bad.
