You have every right to blame someone!!! IMHO, the absolute worst
feature of FOSS is the love developers have for changing a very round
wheel that rolls quite well to something prettier from a design
standpoint but less effective and that breaks everything in sight. No
one from the kernel to glibc to lowly useful tools like wget is exempt
from this mania.

      Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code ... If you write
      the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not
      smart enough to debug it.
