> I pointed out that the choice was not between planning and a chance outcome, but between a society planned by the few from the centre, and one in which individuals each planned their own area of it, then interacted to produce a spontaneous order.

isn't that like different developers using different coding standards (maybe even languages) and then having a wonderful time building 'spontaneous order' at integration time?
