i reach for the same tools when doing front-end dev stuff - it's convenient.
occasionally, tho, i don't. the only time i feel that i'm not "cheating" is when i have the time to write it all myself - which is increasingly rare.
i agree. the time to do it myself is sparse, so im trying to choose the absolute minimal tools to get it working (considering i am working w/ 3rd party requirements on JS).
get it working, make it better and then make it fast - right?
