It seems I'm being misunderstood.

Some people seem to hold the opinion that more libraries = better. I'm 
trying to voice the opinion that there is such a thing as too many 
libraries. The article I linked to explains part of why this is the 
case, in a better way than I've been able to phrase it myself.

I'm not trying to say "OMG, the way it is now completely sucks!" I'm not 
trying to say "you must do X right now!" I'm just trying to put forward 
an opinion. The opinion that having too many libraries can be a problem, 
which some people don't seem to agree with. (Obviously it isn't *always* 
bad, I'm just saying that sometimes it can be.)

That's all I was trying to say.
