I merely gave the reasons I suspected that David (and others) held
their beliefs - I don't share them particularly. As a library author I
have produced quite a few libraries (at least 5), and have received
useful feedback from users which has helped me improve the libraries

I think the largest barrier to having many libraries used in projects
is the lack of a working cabal-install.
