Note to self: Don't *ever* take shortcuts when writing code, even prototypes. Every time an application gets to a certain size, you'll regret those shortcuts, because you won't be able to do what you want to do in a timely manner.

There's something good to be said about "the simplest thing that could possibly work", but don't take that to mean "taking really dumb shortcuts is okay".
