I came across this paper in a different context earlier today.
The paper's opening sentence:
"For a number of years I have been familiar with the observation
that the quality of programmers is a decreasing function of the
density of go to statements in the programs they produce."
Substitute 'fftshift/ifftshift' for 'go to', and the sentence
makes at least as much sense as it did more than 4 decades ago.
