Why?

Below is an algorithm to determine the ultimate reason for any software feature.

def find_ultimate_reason( proposed_feature )
  reason = ask_why( proposed_feature )

  until reason.is_obvious?
    reason = ask_why( reason )
    if reason.is_invalid?
      return "None (don't implement)"
    end
  end

  reason
end
