Mmmm, it took me a while to really find laziness useful, and that was
normally to let me create complex things that were mutually dependent on
each other, releasing me from some housekeeping - some calculation in
one would help the other creep along, and vice versa. I'm afraid no
examples come easily to mind, though.

BTW, I wonder if it's too much difficulty to show off STM.
