> automagically? maybe a typo
No....quite intentional.... have been using the term "automagically" for....
well forever. It generally comes up when a user request for a feature kicks
up the "level of effort" for a task by a order of magnitude or more. It's
generally because they don't realize what's entailed (and there's no reason
for them to). As far as they are concerned, it can just be done...
It's right up there with WIBNI ("wouldn't it be neat if") pronounced WIB-NEE
where I come from... as in "Woudn't it be neat if...." and "Wouldn't it be
neat if..." until you are not sure if what's going to be required is an
obscene amount of coffee or a gun.
These are all closely related to "feature creep" the software equivalent of
a 1950's horror movie creature that slowing but persistently dogs (no
offense to any dog lovers out there) your days and sleepless nights.
