Do you really need to issue religious statements on this forum? Please...
It is as bad, or worse than such claims as "from XXX you cannot learn

Are you sure? The same "basic" library for a 3*3 equation, and for some
enormous radiosity computation, and for ill-conditioned matrices, and
for equations with constraints, and for Moore-Penrose pseudoinverses,
and ... etc. ? ...
Libraries must, and will evolve and adapt/split, since new algorithms
are constructed every week.
And if you like cute citations, such as "doing one thing well" (of
course, everybody knows the meaning of "well", which is universal and
eternal, no?...), I'll give you my favourite:
"There is one truth, which should be obvious to everybody: - *all* truth
which is obvious to some, is far from being obvious to others".
