Yup -- NIH is a beginner mistake.  Only new devs think they have to invent
problems.  Crusty vets know to take the easy way out by working with others.
More, _all_ really productive devs communicate technical issues well and avoid
taking things personally.  Sure your ego is on the line sometimes, but even then
the smart thing to do is to focus on the best solution, because nobody else
cares about your ego.
