It sounded to me like another of those "xxx is not a panacea" articles, and
that "you shouldn't do anything blindly" and "if it doesn't work, you
shouldn't do it." Point taken (and taken and taken).

It was also indicative to me that Jay devotes just one word to TDD.
Literally, one word! He focused exclusively on testing as a way to find
bugs. That's not why I write tests.
