For me there are certain situations in which not reusing might be important:
(1) library size (common-configuration2 is 590K plus dependencies)
(2) requiring only a small part of the library
(3) special integration is targeted
(4) library is not keeping up with new versions in its dependencies
(5) dependencies are known to cause often conflicts

for example Guava is a nice library, but I would not want to add 2.6MB for a single feature
of it.
