"Easy to install" and "doesn't need much time" are not words I want to associate with process piping installations. Those terms bring to mind a plumber brought in at the last minute because the budget ran out.

I reiterate: we're building things that are "potentially dangerous" (ingesting too much DHMO is also "potentially dangerous", pick your poison).

Just some food for thought, as many of us think that making the proper software choice is actual engineering.
