Very rarely do modules fail to install.

I see module installation issues occur as questions on this site, almost every day.

The authors do need to be notified, and the problem, if any, does need to be resolved. I'm not arguing that.

What I am arguing, is that sometimes a module is unnecessary, and a solution that is just as valid can be provided using core modules.
