Well certainly it's understandable that you may have had problems with
them, needed to cram your desired function set into as small a space as
possible, and wanted to get something out the door quickly, etc.  We've
all been there.

As a community, what do we do now though?  Nixio undoubtedly improves on
the aforementioned libraries in various ways, but it does muddy the
waters a bit, and do-it-all blunder-buss libraries don't seem like a
very good way forward in general.
