I think you're looking through the wrong end of the telescope. Whil's

of the others, and pointers on maintaining applications into their
second and third decades. These are important skills, too.

Well, let me know how your book writing goes. If you are looking for
an editor, keep me in mind!

Absolutely! My most successful applications use a lot of third party
software, from web serving to office automation to graphics and GIS! I
have always been a big supporter of the philosophy of integrating many
tools to make the most powerful application.
