  • Someone once wrote "I wrote you a long letter because I did not have time to write a short one" and it sounds like a paradox - but communicating clearly usually means communicating shortly and it takes time to work out what really is your core message. This is the same case with programming libraries - it takes time to realize what are the highly cohesive components and what parts can be decoupled into independent modules. It is a bit unfortunate how the big libraries have advantage in gaining popularity over the specialized and decoupled small ones. It is understandable, when you use one library for one thing you are inclined to use it to something other even if some other library could solve the problem better.
