Great article Matt, and something I've fallen fowl of myself. Trying to prune code that's no longer used is tough but immensely useful.
I find this all the more relevant when using any kind of relational databases. Having a table with a lot of columns, most of which are never used, is just bad for everybody involved.
Great post as always though!!
