Yes, I've been saying this about certain core functionality for a long time.
Me too, since the early 90's.
VB plug-ins and Delphi plug-ins were the bane of my existence for many client projects back in the day on Windows. You'll use something and when the client wanted some changes made a year or two later, the plugins didn't work with the latest version, hasn't been upgraded or were deprecated. In either case you had to find another plugin, rinse and repeat or just give up and solve the problem with your own code.
