It's an interesting philosophy. I usually go the other way around.
I think part of maturing as a developer is being able to pick an
appropriate tool for a given job. I've had to drop LiveCode as a
platform for multiple projects when it wasn't up to the job or I hit
brick walls with it. I'm not much of a php fan, but if it does the job
on the backend I'm fine with using it. Likewise a Rails frontend when LC
server isn't up to the task (certificates, totp, etc.).
