Feedback on my rant

My rant about the quality of the WordPress code caused some discussion, both here and on the WP hackers mailinglist.

I understand if my comments seemed harsh, especially because I’m quite new to [WordPress][], but I still think they were justified. Especially the point about having comments in the code, where I think that (I’m quoting myself here):

[...] the idea that there can be such a thing as well-written code containing no comments is bogus: it is only in small toy examples that the function and argument names are enough to determine what a function does.

Comments are very important in a weakly-typed language like [PHP][] where you cannot tell anything at all from looking at the function.
