Agreed.
I do think that perhaps there is a problem with pilots knowing more about flying than the way the computer is handling the aeroplane systems. Perhaps pilots should learn more about the logic computers follow when making decision x in their plane.
(NB. I'm not a commercial pilot. This view stems from a conversation with a recently ex-A320 captain who had a similar viewpoint. However, I am a programmer.)
