i think that my proposal will allow better utilizing of
our small developers base. or, saying in other words, developing a lot
of small libs will increase a percentage of code reuse instead of
copying or reinventing it

the current i/o implementation in base is an example of this
complexity. you need to become an expert just to understand what should
be changed in order to add support of unicode filanmes, large files or
anything else. the result is that these things remain unchanged for
many years
