Famous computer scientist Leslie Lamport is definitely not a worse is better kind of guy. In Computation and State Machines he wants to make the case that to get better programs we need to teach programmers to think better.

…available for network status, and what keys to watch to find out when something changed. I settled on State:/ Network/Service/[^/]+/IPv4 , which shows me anytime the IPv4 address(es) of the system change. The regular expression captures the network service's UUID, which can then be used to find the user defined name of network at the key Setup:/ Network/Service/ .

Then, it is just a matter of getting out their credit cards to complete the purchase.
