The art of removing features

Il semble que la perfection soit atteinte non quand il n'y a plus rien à ajouter, mais quand il n'y a plus rien à retrancher.
(Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Terre des Hommes, 1939).

[It seems that perfection is reached not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing to subtract]

Besides just keeping the scope reined in, I may actually be eyeing places to remove code for Flare. I believe it's better for the life of the project (and any games that use it) if everything is as simple and essential as possible.
