I'm currently rediscovering my code mojo, as the only coding I've been doing for a long time has been ad-hoc scripts for IT network engineering tasks... but I couldn't agree more! A couple of years ago I took a security policy on a firewall from 1800+ rules down to roughly 70 rules, and the difference in maintainability and general ease of operation from that point on was huge. A distant comparison perhaps, but my thought's were similar in that, the rules that are gone aren't a problem anymore... but, 12k lines of code has to be some kind of record.. nicely done!
