That is correct. Even if a system is reliable and comprehensive, does not mean
it will produce good work. Intelligent people still must command the means of
production, to borrow from my Marxist friends.
Also, I think Good work + poor system = satisfactory output.
Good writers should be able to produce at least reasonably decent output in a
less than ideal environment.
