Reused code is well tested in multiple environments and situations, making
it more reliable than code that would be written and used in a single,
isolated environment. Because of this, reusing code in future projects would
actually benefit those clients. One must be careful though, becauase if
there is an ugly, hidden bug in the reused code, every project that made use
of it will need to be revisited.
