Well, that point I may take issue with. If there's a problem with the
engine or IDE or somesuch and there does exist a workaround, then I'm
less frantic about the bug getting fixed because I know I can continue
to work. I've got notes to myself about hacks that I've put together
to get around certain issues, with notes about the bug number and a
to-do item to remove the hack when and if the problem gets solved.

There are higher priority items to work on that may have more serious
repercussions if not fixed, and if I know of workarounds for other
issues I'm happy with the team going after the big ones.

Also, on a completely different level, the process of finding
workarounds on this list is a bonding experience that builds the
online community as we work together to hone our skills. I'm
constantly amazed by the brilliant snippets of code that folks here
come up with.
