Highlander Principle

From the movie HighLander. The HighlanderPrinciple is:

There can be only one!

Applies to many issues in SoftwareEngineering, where supporting n things (for n > 1) is difficult/impossible whereas supporting only 1 such thing is trivial. There's even a DesignPattern for this--the SingletonPattern.
