That bit of medieval wisdom has context which you seem to miss.

First of all, the word "workman" is not accidental, it is very
distinct from the word "master" (or "guild-member", depending on
your language).

Second it talks about excuses for work which _has_ been done
(shoddily), it does not talk about work not yet undertaken or
refused, because the master finds it unwise to attempt.

Finally, if you think I'm "a shitty programmer" I wish you good
luck finding better ones...

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
