I have a question along these lines:  I refer to much of the old code that I 
see as being brittle.  I don't know exactly why I started using that term but 
it does seem appropriate.  Touch something, and something breaks somewhere 
else.  change a line of code and suddenly some whole section starts behaving 

Have others noticed this?  Does this word make sense to others, or am I 
speaking badly?  It is important to me because I feel we must constantly fight 
against this brittleness or suddenly we have applications that are no longer 
useful or repairable.  Its usually at this point that I hear the "We need some 
PCs to do this" speech.
