Something of an arbitrary limit, yes? The "we don't need lots of apps to do
the same thing" I can see, but this one?

Prepare thy ablutions, worship the bean, and shun the abomination that is
decaf, and one day you too shall walk among the Blessd, whose blood flows
thick and brown with God's Chemical and whose hearts have been replaced with
the more efficient mechanism of a Mr. Coffee.   - Keith Morris
