Title: McCabe's Cyclomatic Complexity equation, the surprising 
implications for code reuse, and the road ahead for (all) computer 
languages. 

Abstract
McCabe's Cyclomatic Complexity equation is introduced and the 
necessary background in Control Flow Graphs presented.  Consideration 
of the equation shows that code reuse increases cyclomatic complexity. 
 'Critical Nodes' are defined and discussed.  A refactoring technique 
for reducing cyclomatic complexity without loss of reuse is shown. 
Some common assumptions about code reuse are examined.  Possibilities 
for adapting computer languages are discussed.
