Question: I notice you've useed the term "feature latch". Can you tell what the analogy exactly means?

    It refers to the fact that once you add a feature to a released version of software, you are stuck with supporting it for eternity (or at least, if you stop supporting it, you will piss off some percentage of your users). AKA feature-ratchet

    Yeah, designing such features is a nightmare. And epiphany, when it actually works out for and in the future :D
