Data is code.

Or is that data are code? I'm grumpy about this simple image-processing project I've been doing for so long because there are so many ^&#^%#$^ points in it. There are the corners for warping the image, a dozen different display blocks -- each a different size -- to have their numbers and letters recognized.

I've got to either measure those points by hand and type the results into my program, or else write yet more single-use ancillary bits to recognize those points and then dump them into a table. Either way is annoying. Part of me wants to write the ancillary bits because so much of the program is effectively embedded in those numbers, but part of me wants to be done with the damn thing already.
