Hmm, not all of us live in that charmed world.

Clients often have line of business needs that eclipse coding purity. They don't care about how it gets done, just that it works reliably. And purity != reliability. In existing codebases, it's often not a matter of bad planning or specs. Sure, we explain the 'do it right' piece, and at the end the result is about the same as me explaining to my dog we can't go for a walk because it's too cold; she still ends up at the door waiting.
