And for a small subset of IBM users and some small language communities,
there would be even more new code.   Their documents will not work well with the
other 99.9999 per cent.  Is that a very big loss?  In flood mitigation, the solution
is usually to buy the affected buildings and tear them down.

Bill Gates has been trying to buy up those mainframes and tear them down for about 10 years now.  :~)
For some odd reason, the IBM users prefer to stay in business than to keep up with the latest fashions. Really makes life hard on the rest of us, doesn't it?
