That's why Open Source is great and code comments are useless!

Great as usual! What about changing the last sentence to "In code we trust"?

a typo? shouldn't it say "what do you think [it could] do?"

Actually, that's fairly typical of software written with poor understanding of the separation of concern concept.
I've step-through code as simple as "getId( )" and found that not only does it gets the ID, it makes a remote call to an external library, configures something in the system, instantiates a bunch of objects (some of them legacy and useless) before pasting all these into the registry.
And it's called "getID( )".
