Can't care too much about what happens to your code in any closed
source shop. I've had enough projects triaged (the good managers are
the ones who know that it's painful and break it to you gently) and
one (so far) company go under, bringing the entire code base with it.
Leaving the company before it sank and working on the project that
ought to replace the terminated work was a nice consolation, though.
