Do you carefully consider the technical debt implications of introducing dependencies to your code before adding it to your code?

If you answered this either way, please leave feedback behind your justification in a reply to this toot.


@cadey I've been bitten too many times by additional considerations when it comes to updating. Upgrading dependencies can be troublesome, especially when coupled with upgrades to the runtime or stdlib forcing lock-step major-version changes of those dependencies.
