paving over

Integration is difficult.  Why?  It is the part of development where
there are a lot of opportunities to simplify, and if they are not
taken when they present themself, complexity explodes.

Basically if you find yourself paving over interface problems in a
lower layer, you should fix them in the lower layer instead.

If you don't do this, software tetris happens.
