But that seems like a stretch given the effective shipping to ports on the west coast.
The west coast ports for North America. are maxed out and need modernization to accommodate larger shipping vessals.
The Chinese are also spending $50B to build the Nicaragua Canal in Central America to bypass the west coast ports.
The occasional labor strike at the west coast ports and the resulting backlog doesn't help either. Alternative routes may be worth the money for the Chinese to get their products to U.S. consumers.

While your one-line of code will install a single printer, my four-line of code will read the printer URLs from a text file and install a printer every 30 seconds. Otherwise, it would take five minutes per printer using the GUI wizard. With 500+ printers to test, the time difference between using an automated script and the GUI wizard is ~4 hours vs. ~40 hours. Gotta a love a programming language that saves you time in cleaning up someone else's mess.

What's next - the "archaic" practice of owning your own home?
You never really own your own home. If you don't pay property taxes, the local government will foreclose and sell the house to someone else. If that person doesn't pay property taxes, rinse and repeat.
