That is true.

The important thing is that every individual developer tries. Perhaps
it starts with unit tests, or even adding version control to the

facing a tidal-wave of obstacles to writing maintainable code.

One of the biggest obstacles is the "not my problem" syndrome which
has contaminated many developers.
