Perhaps, but that doesn't mean that people want to start from scratch, 
especially if they need a relatively complex widget.

Actually, in my experience, they *do* care about the way it looks and the 
way it behaves. And that takes a lot of work, so they want to pick up 
something instead of having to develop it themselves. If they can pick up 
something that does the job but is a mire of spaghetti, that's usually 
better than something technically brilliant that doesn't do the job.
