Judges aren't computers, and they don't interpret the law the way a
C compiler interprets code. They usually see this sort of thing as
evasion, and are likely to come down hard on it.
Just sayin'. I am not a lawyer, and this is not legal advice, but it
isn't the unauthorized practice of law, either.

The known is finite, the unknown infinite; intellectually we stand
on an islet in the midst of an illimitable ocean of inexplicability.
Our business in every generation is to reclaim a little more land,
to add something to the extent and the solidity of our possessions.
--Thomas Henry Huxley
