You have code modifying code every time you edit a source file inside
a text editing program - it's just linked to keyboard events.
There are important uses for having easier access to code at runtime.
You could more easily create a graphical interface to programming lua code,
for example. It would also greatly simply constructing class browsers and
other code visualization tools.
