No, it is just that a proper solution to the problem requires different work procedures and tools to arrive at the desired end-point. It is not simply "take what we have today and plug in a tool to 
fix it all"... the proper solution requires starting over on a clean piece of paper and building a system which answers all of the requirements presented in computing today. Adding duct tape tools to 
today's patchwork quilt of computing is just one more piece in the patchwork quilt, it's not a new picture at all.
