Masterclass: KVC magic tricks

KVO is very, very dangerous. No matter how skillful you believe to be, strive to avoid it as much as you can.

If you really need KVO, then use Facebook’s KVOController. Don’t ever attempt to write the required code on your own. Just look at the source code of this Facebook’s bag of voodoo if you need reasons.
