I'm a DOS curmudgeon (still hopeful that DOS 3.31 will make a comeback).
But, on these Win-fangled computers, it's just not worth it to try to go too
deep. By the time you've got it set up your way there's a new Operating
Environment that throws in some sneaky changes.
I concentrate on using the tools (version 2.0 or above, please) and let
someone else get headaches tweaking changing code.

I think that the self-sufficiency part is only true for new kids. Old hands
that came up in DOS environments are probably able to handle "innards"
without much difficulty.
