Could be either.

Well, not ground-breaking research.  But if something is available in a
programming language used for "the practical needs of mainstream software
development", then it's certainly at least a candidate for inclusion.

"The exception proves the rule."  Dimbulbs think: "Your counterexample proves
my theory."  Latin students think "'Probat' means 'tests': the exception puts
the rule to the proof."  But legal historians know it means "Evidence for an
exception is evidence of the existence of a rule in cases not excepted from."
