I never suggested this, but it seemed there was a sentiment that
scratching on the part of individual developers was a bad thing -
counterproductive to some common goal - and should be discouraged.
That struck me as odd.  I do agree that modularity and reusability
should indeed be encouraged, e.g. in educating user-developers in MVC
design patterns and library-based development.
