…conflicts and dependency hells can be very time-consuming and annoying, too. Ruby-on-Rails programs for example need the right combination of Ruby Version (for example Ruby 1.8.7 or 1.9.2), the right Ruby-On-Rails Version (2.3.8 or 3.2), and the right RubyGems Version (say 1.3.5). The gems or plugins have their own versions, too. The whole system only works if everything fits together. In the beginning this is no problem, for a new system usually everything is up-to-date. …

In Rails, that's the almighty X-Runtime header — reported to the 6th decimal of a second, for that extra punch of authority. A clear target, easily measured, and in that safe realm of your own code to make it appear fully controllable and scientific. But what good is saving off milliseconds for a 50ms internal target, if your shit (or non-existent!) CDNs are costing you seconds in New Zealand? Pounds, not pennies, is where the wealth is.
