Good luck reinventing the flat tire.

The analogy to reinventing the wheel is inappropriate, since in the case of a working solution, it is a waste of time to reinvent it. But, in the case of failures, "reinventing it" (and potentially no longer failing), should be praised, not ridiculed, no? (again, with the proof caveat above, and even then some... proofs can sometimes be disproved)
