I count myself among those who never learned to put away all my toys. In fact, I've found that if I do put things away then I lose them.)The problem is they are not your toys, you share them with other kids.Is this too sophisseristic?No, not sophisseristic. But perhaps you are becoming a communitarian? Should all property (and all variables) be public?But the issue of shared toys is true -- what should one assume if a toy or variable is still "out" and observable? AGC assumes it's still needed. But that's only true if all children (and coders) are diligent about cleaning up when they are done.
