I disagree: I don't believe there is an "average person" or an "average
use case".

But please, don't mistake this for discouragement!  I just want to
caution you against judging your efforts by an impossible standard.
Your efforts are very unlikely to be "the solution", because (IMO) there
is no single solution.  But that does not invalidate the benefit some
will receive from what you do.

Really, please read this as strong encouragement.  But please don't
judge your success by an unachievable goal.  You deserve better
treatment than that.  :)
