I was about to write a piece like this (and I might do it anyways!). But I totally agree on the "does not solve problems it claims to" part. They claim to solve the naming problem, only to delegate it to single file components… where style is scoped so you don't need naming anyways.

And I would be super concerned about maintaining it. Built of speed no doubt. But I moved away from bootstrap utility classes when I had to change some margins—but not all. Now why was this one m-4 ? Should I change it to m-3 ?
