At a recent software engineering management course in the US, the
participants were given an awkward question to answer.  "If you had
just boarded an airliner and discovered that your team of programmers
had been responsible for the flight control software how many of you
would disembark immediately?"

Among the ensuing forest of raised hands, only one man sat motionless.
When asked what he would do, he replied that he would be quite content
to stay on board.

With his team's software, he said, the plane was unlikely to even taxi
as far as the runway, let alone take off.
