re: Time. Especially for small / personal projects.

Yep. Time to re think the problem now you have a solution to explore it with. Time to refactor the ugly bits, or the architecture as a whole. Time to ask a colleague/friend/mentor. Time to learn a new technique or language feature or library that could help.

IMO this is the primary reason FOSS is generally better than commercial code (there are always exceptions - bite me!), it's had more time spent on it, although a close second is caring about quality in FOSS.
