That's a good strategy when you're working on your own stuff, but I wager you'll need a bigger bag of tricks when working on a multi-100KLoc probject with over a dozen developers.

At some point in every project I've ever been on, there's a BUG that wasn't foreseen or caught by careful iterative development and testing. Then the fun begins.
