The flip side of this argument is, why replicate what already works, is
maintained by other equally dedicated groups, and would arguably run much(?)
faster until dot.gnu has JIT compiler capabilities on par with GCC's

I think that having pure pnetlib implementations would be a good thing.. but
I also think that being able to say.. look.. dot.gnu its here.. its now..
and its based on libs that are already out there and running on production
