Like most respondents, I am horrified that anyone would think this is a good strategy. But that doesn't make the question unconstructive or off-topic. It stimulated a good discussion of development strategies for slow target platforms, and of the difference between development and test. Pros and Cons for the strategy were suggested (and the cons clearly won out). It was the 2nd highest voted question on the site, and near the top of the view count too.
What makes that an unconstructive question?
(Disclaimer - I neither wrote nor answered this question - I am just suprised to see it closed)
