I was specifically talking about someone in scanning mode. There are dozens
of scripting languages around there, and you have to quickly filter out most
of them to focus on the most promozing ones. It's important to let your best
assets stand out at first sight, so that you get a second, more carefull
look; a comparison might be drawn with dating (for people who have a large
choice of potential willing partners, that is).

I agree with Fabien (and Andy). If you look at "marketing material" as
a discarding filter, having false positives is a lot worse than
handling the eventual false negatives. :o)
