Noun: the act of taking a piece of code that was originally crafted as its own little special snowflake, and making it instead work like the rest of the system now does.

(What? Yes, it's simply a special case of refactoring. But you have to admit that it's evocative of the point...)

I thought this was going to be about people--as in, that moment when someone realizes that they are not that special snowflake (or perhaps that everyone is one) and matures accordingly.

Which is kinda similar...

Yeah, does this work on people too?!
