Depends on your motivation. If it's just educational - I agree. My
motivation however is having a system where I know where everything is
and have clean, maintainable scripts and configs (useful configs
btw). That doesn't mean that I have to write all the configs myself, I
just want to know they work and I want them to be bloatless and
static. But then again, this may be beyond the scope of this project.
