have an absolutely good, perfectly strong reason to exist within the
compass of competence of any strong programmer, no matter what
language[s] he or she uses for _general-purpose_ stuff. Even when using
a higher-level abstraction (an ORM rather than SQL, or one of those
user's browser), which may or may not be a good choice for a certain
specific use, you really still need good understanding and practice of
performance, debugging of any problem that may arise, etc etc
("Spolsky's Law of Leaky Abstractions" applies strongly here;-).
