Cool. First! :sunglasses:

Regarding Proxy Contracts, THIS is exactly what I was trying to get at in the ETH 201 course when I was talking about dependency injection. A proxy is a different way of accomplishing the same thing. External contract calls are rather expensive on gas though, so Iā€™d imagine this is used sparingly.

It also occurs to me the increased risk with smart contract programming is in a way a good thing. This forces developers to adopt much better habits. Testing and security are top priorities, so must be considered right from the beginning. This makes better developers.
