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.
