But why is this so? I cannot share this perception but maybe 
I'm with the project for too long. 
I remember I started small (improving a driver as an afernoon 
project - the driver has long been finished the afternoon still 
isn't over yet) and worked my way up.
The learning curve has been steep and it is even steeper today,
but this cannot be the only reason as other projects have steep
learning curves, too.
