Couldn't agree more! MVPs are about plumbing, not about architecting. Grab whatever you can get your hands on and plumb it together to serve your test needs. MVP coding reverses many of the 'be a good coder' doctrine - for example:

• DRY vs. Cut & Paste (it's faster than abstracting and creating a common interface etc...)

• Avoid Glue Code vs. Duck-tape Code to hold open source components, hacked sample code and other code fragments together

Fast MVPs ftw!

Great post Kevin! It's good to understand why one is building something and not confuse that with how to build it.
