Hmm... I don't think that's necessary. A "credits chapter/page" would be nice
though. Everything is changed by the book crew, giving ppl credits may start a
fight ("I changed more than you... sew you" etc).

There is no programming language, no matter how structured,
that will prevent programmers from writing bad programs.
