This sounds more like the Tao than reality.. "Code written by a great hacker usually doesn't need maintenance because it already does the right thing" All software needs maintenance, no-mather how close to perfect (perfection is an illusion) they are from the start. The world changes, requirements changes, frameworks, APIs, Operating Systems, hardware.. everything changes. Sorry for dissing the Tao - I shall not sleep tonight :)

The first version always gets thrown away.
