The Timeless Way of Software

I just finished Chris Alexander's The Timeless Way of Building and I only have one question with regards to software development: why do we laud the patterns and ignore the call to context? In other words: modularity is the enemy of usable software. It also happens to be the enemy of efficient and of readable software. If I see one more networking package or ORM with One Abstraction To Rule Them All I am going to scream. You and I are really good at abstractions. We are freaks. Most people have a hard time with them. Try not to proliferate them unnecessarily.
