in thread A "newbies" thoughts on

In line with grep's comments, I prefer using mature modules because they do things I don't know about, may have forgotten, or didn't know that I didn't know.

What I don't know can kill me, and what I don't know that I don't know will send me to hell afterwards. :)

Not that you don't have a right or freedom to reinvent anything you like, it truly is a valuable learning experience - if you learn.
