I read this somewhere awhile ago: "Perfect is the enemy of good" :-)

I still have not released a major revision to my arduino library because I wanted it to be perfect.

I Never trust a student... Generally it was me that did the critical training... And PC boards are Always... A Work in Progress.
Occasionally one of my customers complains when I say that and my standard retort is...
"I wasn't aware perfection was a part of our contract... I only guarantee it to work as we agreed and WE never discussed "Perfect""
In 20+ years of making PCB's... If the first article works W/O modification and the board house didn't complain too loudly...  about making it...
I have reached the NECESSARY level of Perfection. You can spend HOURS seeing to every vertice being exactly on grid, that the wire spacing is a perfect parallax illusion
and in the end the board has no shame whatsoever.... It still works more or less as the design did...
It is when the PCB whose connectivity is IDENTICAL (as checked by 3 people) and is identical in connectivity with schematic and breadboard and still refuses to work...
That I get worried.

Check all boards first before declaring them operational?
