Frankly, I don't understand "not invented here" syndrome.

Letting a community solve a common problem like handling accounting affords you so much additional time to focus on your domain and providing value to your customers and that’s likely what you’re getting paid to do.

If you feel like you really need to write some accounting code, give back to the library that you’re using. You can never have too much open-source software and you can never have too many helpful people.
