I could also add that if you find a bug in a library, report it.

As an example, some months ago I read on StackOverflow an old answer
where someone mentioned trying the "regex" module but had found that
some Unicode properties were unreliable. That came as a surprise to me
because no-one had reported such a problem (and I still don't know what
that problem was).

Compare that with a recent bug report that it didn't work correctly on
Mac OS X. The reporter was very helpful and that bug is now fixed.
