My main problem with all the new ways of doing things are:

a) there are too bloody many of them

b) they seem to have a half life of a couple of years, and then
   be replaced by the new hotness.

If I wanted to spend my life chasing the latest silver bullet, I'd
be programming in Ruby already with the rest of the rockstars.

Dealing with DJabberd and the way 'use fields' was such a huge pile
of suck going to 5.10, I'm over that shit already.
