Highlander Principle

From the movie HighLander. The HighlanderPrinciple is: There can be only one! Applies to many issues in SoftwareEngineering, where supporting n things (for n > 1) is difficult/impossible whereas supporting only 1 such thing is trivial. There's even a Design Pattern for this--the SingletonPattern. CategoryPrinciple
