Given that all we have are binary copies, how are we going to fix the bugs?

We don't know which bits are bloat, and which bits are code for features
have 'yet to be shipped'.

Coorrect me if im wrong, but the gentic make up a creature certianly seems
to be a pack rats dream. How much stuff is stuffed into the code that will
nto get used, gets used in non usefull ways, gets used in ways damaging to
the creature itself.

Can it not be said that we are the products of a bloated code sequence
that has, as all bloat ware does, feature creep and bugs a gogo?

In short, is there any harm at looking into bumming the code down a few
