I asked this question a few days ago. Shortly after I placed a bounty on it (due to low attention), it was migrated to Stack Overflow, with no comment or anything (and, weirdly enough, the bounty was refunded despite bounties being "non-refundable under any circumstances," but I digress). Without any sort of explanation, I find it difficult to determine why it was inappropriate for Programmers. It strikes me as more of a design than a coding question, though it does have elements of both.
Presumably, there was a valid reason for the migration. Under that assumption, what did I do wrong? Why was Programmers a poor choice of venue for this question?
