// ... ten pages worth of code.
That just save you from having to scroll through ten pages of code to find main, when all you might want to do is see the program flow real fast (which becomes a frustrating ordeal when you have to scroll through ten pages of code to find main).
Obviously I exaggerated intentionally, since it usually requires blinding contrast to make subtle points clear.
*You might argue that it's less useful, but others would disagree. Should programming features be modified for you? Nah. That's why it's there, because some consider it useful, and some do not. All options satisfied! It really shouldn't need to be argued further, there's pros and cons to everything, and what applies is relative to purpose and context.
