When those goals conflict with placing specific functionality in a
library, we have an infrastructure problem.  We won't solve that problem
by cramming everything into the core, not least of all because such
specific solutions cannot really reliably be turned into a
one-size-fits-all approach.

So it is important _not_ to have shrinkwrapped functionality for a
particular purpose _forced_ onto users but have it loadable on demand.
And be able to offer choice between one or several different solutions
as well as rolling your own.
