Re: Works where applicable

"What about pairing two average programmers, which is the most probable use case?"

Using the same kind of arithmetic used in the financial sector for creating low risk securities, if you combine two averagely competent (or worse) people, and then consider them as a single item, the single item will perform much much much better than the two individual items on their own. What could possibly go wrong?
