Well there's two ways I can look at this:

1) Yes, you're right.  And:

 A) But I'm a fan of overkill, and since EE is my life, it couldn't hurt to
have such a thing.
 B) I probably should just build the El Cheapo

2) Speaking in reference to the freelance work thread, since I am working on
this project for a company, it seems that I might want to try and stick them
with the bill.  $450 is a lot easier to slip in than $1000, and could be
validated more easily as a "Prototyping Cost".

Shrug many a time!
