Best quote from a paper this week

Programming in OMeta would be very frustrating if all productions were defined in the same namespace: two grammars might unknowingly use the same name for two productions that have different purposes, and one of them would certainly stop working! (Picture one sword-wielding grammar decapitating another, Highlander-style: “There can be only one!”)

From Warth and Piumarta's OMeta: an Object-Oriented Language for Pattern Matching.
