...how do I verify your intent with you...

The same as how you verify my code without me. Read it.

...and automatically...

The same as how you verify my code automatically. On a large scope, either that's what happens in the tests, or it isn't. On a smaller scope, you don't.


Beyond this, I really doubt this conversation is going to be productive. I know intent-comments work because I actually use them in production. But, I have learned that there are camps who believe that comments are a waste of time, and who will continue to believe they're a waste of time regardless of what I have to say about it. ;) So, I think we'd better agree-to-disagree at this point.
