Yes. What you are missing is that people just looking to employ a library to make their lives easier don't case *whose* fault it is when the library fails to make their lives easier, they just stop using the library. You can say that it is the fault of the compiler rather than the fault of the library, but that doesn't change the experience of using the library.
