[Grok-dev] unique item in container question

I'd just like to mention that one of the reasons why you might find it  
difficult in the beginning is because one always thinks "there must be  
a really smart way to do this" when one sometimes should just go with  
the good old KISS and then refactor if one learns of a better way.

You will often get pointers to pretty powerful components, but as a  
newbie they are sometimes quite difficult to understand.

I built a CMS from scratch and it is serving very well right now, and  
I can assure you that I have had to rewrite many hacks BUT I find that  
I have saved a lot of time and frustration by winging it.

My rule of thumb has been that if I don't find an obviously superior  
and understandable solution within say an hour or two of research I  
just write my own really simple solution.

My inspiration was Martijns hurry components and the comment "I write  
my own because I am in a hurry...".
