Excellent article. I'm working on one right now and the question arose for me about too much cleanliness. It's an interesting balance, to share a technique about keeping code clean, but factoring in how that will actually play out in a mature code base or on a diverse team.

 

Thanks! I found more and more that when looking at code all I was thinking how it could be improved, cleaned and refactored. While it's great to have this awareness I think a key point in that balance is accepting the code base and not being ashamed of it.
