+1 for pointing out that flaws in the implementation of an idea do not necessarily mean that the idea itself is flawed.

A woodchuck would chuck all the wood he could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood. (According to the tongue twister, although the paper "The Ability of Woodchucks to Chuck Cellulose Fibers" by P.A. Paskevich and T.B. Shea in Annals of Improbable Research vol. 1, no. 4, pp. 4-9, July/August 1995, concluded that a woodchuck can chuck 361.9237001 cubic centimeters of wood per day.)

comment Library vs. framework vs API?
yeah, I was at a bit of loss for words on that one. anyone have any better suggestions? other wise feel free to edit. I went looking on wikipedia, which calls a framework: "Frameworks are a special case of software libraries in that they are reusable abstractions of code wrapped in a well-defined Application programming interface (API)", which seems to cause more confusion in the context of this question than help.
