I'm just sitting here waiting for Jenkins plugin to compile.  Some code I
wrote.  Only a few files of source.

Over a hundred jars.  It's amazing.

At first, I thought, "my god, this is terrible"...

But no.  This is what we wanted.  This is the future.  This is what happens
when you have transparent, modular software that is reused and assembled.
This is actually pretty freaking amazng.

The cost of reusing just some tiny thing, rather than rewriting it, is so low
that we pulk all this crap in.  And it doesn't matter.  It just works.

Well, sometimes.
