Right. The problem is too often people have a hammer and make everything a
nail.   Or they have an electric screwdriver and then try to use if for
everything.  The trick is to teach good taste and when certain solutions
make more sense than others.   Allocating a thread for every page being
sent to disk, or needing 120 threads for a simple application -- somebody
missed the boat.

Funny, used to deliver nails in kegs.  Hit with a hammer - wood fastened.
Somebody develops a screw system.  A 'better fastener.' Indeed it does work
great for >>some jobs<< but not all.   Frankly that sucks for framing.
 What do you see at any real job site. Not screws but a pneumatic hammer
and nail cartridges?  Changed the deliver system from key and forcing
somebody to swing the hammer.

Lesson learned to *use the proper tool *or update the tool if the
>>technique<< is the right one.
