> The overhead of adding an dependency is no longer worth it.

Wait until you start seeing components that depends on various trivial libraries (hook functions) for state management. My bet is on setInterval to be a very common one.

Given that the implementation of setInterval is far from trivial[1], that is likely correct.


We must disagree on what is considered trivial or complex enough to warrant a 3rd party dependency and the complications that comes with it.
