That assumption seems fundamentally flawed.  A substantial
and complex application will be built from a number of modules,
and is likely to mix preexisting components with new ones.
If you're thinking of all your work being one module, then
you need to take a step back and review it.

A good startingpoint is "one module per task".  How many tasks
does your application comprise?  How many of those tasks can
be accomplished using existing modules?

It's also of course a valid approach to mix-and-match modules
with other components such as scripts and backends.  But I
guess you see that as an intermediate stage in your work.
