"A" new zero day hole?

I'm sure the NSA has a whole library of them, but until one is found out by someone else why would they use a new one when the old one works fine? Because once you start using one, it increases the chances that it will be reverse engineered by someone looking into what happened or escape into the wild by a careless black bagger.
