It is surprising how many things this is true for.


True for any industry that learned the lessons of Captain Murphy, USAF [of "Murphy's Law"]. Everything that *can* connect together, somebody *will* connect it together, so you had better make sure that only the right ones can connect together (pretty much the real source of Murphy's Law).
