I agree 100% - I would also add employee to the group. I've seen a hell of a lot
of code that could only be justified by the individual's desire to make
themselves indispensable!!

I was a contractor/consultant for many years - I saw every bit as much (if not
more) lousy code written by staffers as by contractors.

Of course some systems do indeed appear to be designed to maximize consulting
revenues (SAP for example).
