On a developer level you might not be willing to replace your custom code by a newly discovered library that does the job in a better way because you spent a lot of time writing that code.

If that is really true, I might be an exception, because I love to throw away my own code, if it is no longer needed. If I find a library, that does something better, than my own code (not seldom), I happily use the library. Better performance and less code to maintain... I'd say, it is a "win - win" situation.
