Perhaps it's not known due to several reasons:

1. Most people aren't used to web-app development

2. if-else is considered not OO by some purist (or even by some semi-purist). if-else might also be considered hard to test (adding more branches).

3. People are probably ignoring deployment issues (not high priority) or perhaps they just throw it to the Ops team to deal.

Our intended goal with this is to not rely on an ops team. Use test driven deployment and automated systems to keep things in check. Discipline is what lets a system like this actually work.


The keyword is "Discipline". This is the very fundamental principal for anyone in the IT industry.
