No one is proposing blindly using stuff from random GitHub repositories. We're 
not Node.js.

Reusing existing code is not blindly trusting. It would imply importing the 
feature, inspecting it and integrating with our build. It's a means to speed 
up development, by reusing prior work with pride. In the spirit of Open 
Source.
