Yeah, sure. We can keep a pile of buggy software with hundreds of hacks
working around the bugs, giving jobs to ourselves, call ourselves
experts while still increasing the complexity of the system in order to
remain being the ones with expertise.

Or we can break this circle and replace this by a simpler solution. Yes,
we will run into bugs that we wouldn’t have run into without doing
anything, at first. This is still a very valuable investment.
