I am sure the code is fabulous.
But if I use it, the probability of an issue increases.
There will come an OS, a compiler, an IDE, a lint tool
a coverage tool, a profiling tool... something that takes
issue with it. And there is the probability that I
won't be able to work around it.

I am sure the code is *absolutely* fabulous.
But each new dependency increases the
probability of a show stopper.

The Great Paranoid developer.
