well, "useless" maybe a little harsh. But they may not conform with your
strategy and therefore need "reworking". Seldom are you in a position
where all the code is written by the same team, using the same strategies
and styles for the same single purpose. So learning to integrate code
from other people has to be part of your "bag'o'tricks".
