As a general rule, blender is already too far on the 'overcomplicated
hard-coded special cases' side - it needs more in the way of simple,
rock solid, generic tools that work capably and reliably, that can be
adapted to your own usage patterns. This seems harder to achieve in
open source where volunteer devs like to work on their own little
systems and portions of code, but it's better for users in the long
