Not really. The closest I got was a sense that Java should be WYSISYG,
and list hides the .get(0) (and possible NPE).
I wasn't convinced, but equally I don't find this as compelling as ARM,
NPE handling and extending for-each. As a result I personally voted them
at the bottom - number 10 of 10, matching the general view.
