100% correct!

People do it all the time. The describe the
problem in terms of what technology they think
will solve it. It makes it difficult for them
and everyone else.

But worst thing is even "professional"
employers do this. "We look for two Java
programmers with experience in Eclipse..." shut
up! Tell me your problem and I'll solve it
instantly by replacing your system with a truly
professional one!


PS. No disrespect to the OP who is into Lisp
    intricacies for the sake of it like
    many others here.
