While I do agree in having a reasonable doubt on the reliability of the tools, I totally disagree with laziness.
I really don't see how laziness can lead to good programming techniques: keeping things concise, simple and efficient requires actually a great deal of dedication.

Maybe you refer on the quotes of Bill Gates saying that laziness was his best quality as a programmer... well, I'd take it as more as a friedly chitchat than as a serious advice.
