Because it saves an incredible amount of programmer time, dude! Your post seems to define "serious work" as "that for which processor time is much more valuable than programmer time". And I think if you have even an average understanding of the industry, you find that is very often *not* the case.
Sounds like you need to work harder at understanding the *business goals* of your work, rather than your own brilliance, dude. Because not doing so is just plain stupid.
