for heavy wizardry
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :
Code or designs that trade on a particularly intimate knowledge or
experience of a particular operating system or language or complex
application interface. Distinguished from deep magic, which trades
more on arcane theoretical knowledge. Writing device drivers is
heavy wizardry; so is interfacing to X (sense 2) without a
toolkit. Esp.: found in source-code comments of the form "Heavy
wizardry begins here". Compare voodoo programming.
