Client Variables: The Final Nail

I have been working on a project for a while now. Really, for about 6 years, but only in the past month did I get everything written down. I call it The Final Nail for ColdFusion Client Variables. It's an eight page (printed) look at ColdFusion's client variables scope, and all the problems that come with it.
If you are looking for a reason to go through your ColdFusion app and replace you client vars, print off a copy and take it to your manager.
If you use client variables and think everything is fine, I suggest you read it and find out exactly what you have gotten yourself into.
If you are in love with client variables, well, I'm so sorry. I'd hoped we could be friends. I really am a nice guy, but we have to draw the line somewhere.
I had a ton of help, so thanks to everyone who pitched in (whether you know it or not)!
Last, this is the standing comments post for the article, so if you want to talk about it, this is the place. You can also get me on twitter, @nathanstrutz if you have any quick comments.
That's all; enjoy The Final Nail for ColdFusion Client Variables!
