not to say that low-discoverability interfaces are bad in general; i'm an avid vim user and it's about as low-discoverability as it gets. but it's a tradeoff, like all things.


@tindall vim=good if you want discoverability then use emacs, right? But being that there is overhead to discovery, is that the benefit to lower discovery apps? Perhaps apps could be written to be higher discovery then reduced as you no longer need the discovery. Maybe as you use a feature enough times its entry gets removed from the help files/man pages?
