I can't say, because I don't have that much experience yet.
I guess it's almost like with other systems, except that
in your design iterations, you also modify your development tools
so as to adapt them to your needs.
I think that language developers already do that kind of things;
but in presence of non-reflective languages, they are "privileged" users.

``gode'' in french (pronounce as ``god'' in english) means a dildo; the latin
word for god is ``deus'', which pronounces like the tennis scoring term
``deuce'' in english. How can anyone see anything intrinsically holy in words?
