Just came across something too great not to share.  From Jamie Zaworski, an original Netscape developer:

``Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can.''

This reminds me of Wirth's law, to the effect that "every sufficiently powerful computer language has equal power".  A good litmus test for this power is the ability to create a lunar lander game - or an email client.
