Writing code is a tedious job.
Let's write 20k lines of XML transforms instead.

    XML transforms always felt like they needed Lisp but were afraid of the word "Turing complete" so they came up with something that is context-free if you use it once, but then gave it to people with real problems who stuck it in a loop because real problems are sometimes TC.

    Same with Regex in production. Static analysis of TC languages is thriving. There's no performance gain to a CF grammar that isn't immediately lost on shitty code that could be pristine if it could use context.
