Very low for the first two (or more — depending on how much attention the specific topic receives) years ;-) — but still better than nothing in the long run.
Actually, some libraries (or at least parts of them) might become reliable quite quick if there would be a nucleus of crystallisation:
Result, Quaternion, Color, Point and other basic structures already exist, and I'd really loose faith in the community if it would manage to start long discussions about how a Point should be represented.
For some algorithms, it might be even easier if people don't insist on how the internal variables should be called and just translate a reference implementation.
