Yeah, well, I studied at the Austin Ziegler Charm School on ruby-core. :-)

Oh, I have no objection to people writing HAML if they want to. In
fact, if people want to develop themes in M4, they can do that too. I
just need to be able to customize my web site by editing something
HTML-like. If I can't, I'll find some software where I can. It was the
HAMLization of the default template that shocked me.

And hopefully it'd do a better job than the PHP captchas I keep
running into that fail to recognize the correct answer to their own
challenge because they assumed they had permission to store cookies in
my browser.
