You wouldn't be the first :-)

Rumour has it that it's flawed at best,
redundant at worst.

The justification would appear real,
the solution to that 'real' problem would
seem flawed. 'just that no one has bettered it...

Longer time spent in the problem domain perhaps?

What we appear to have is a 'how' solution, without
time being spent addressing the root cause and
a 'what is needed to resolve it' period.
