Arrogance or not, it is usually much easier to write "your own" than to try
to fit a square through a round hole. 

As for "used by many people..." assertion, IMO, the "safety in numbers" is a
fool's paradise when it comes to programming. There are far more projects
that fail than one that are successful, and of these that are "successful",
even fewer deliver to expectations. A logical destination of such reasoning
would be that you're more likely to fail if you do what everybody else is
doing. So, stop pushing this square trough a triangular hole and start using
your imagination. As No.44 would say -- with Erlang, you can!
