I don't think it is just the coolness factor. It is easier to justify needing 
to hack database code to your boss/professor/manager than it is to justify 
hacking on the website.  Same is true for a great many third party apps like 
ODBC/JDBC/PhpPgAdmin/etc...  All of these things help you solve another 
problem.  The current website, while not award winning, is functional enough 
that enough people can get work done without haveing to chip in.
