Further, integrating widget A
from group X
with widget B
from group Y
to make superwidget C
would require an intimate knowledge of the underlying language(s), principles, and schemas used by the groups making widgets A and B that could only be arrived at by close and exhaustive study of the widgets in question.
That isn't to say that it's impossible to do, not at all. Just impossible to automate. You wouldn't expect to be able to combine a car and a washing machine without a solid background in internal combustion engines and plumbing, right? Same deal.
