Then you are looking at the wrong kind of organization. The bank I worked for
had something over 100MLOC of locally written proprietary Cobol code
at the time of their 1998-99 inventory for Y2K. (Some small amount
of this was actually not Cobol but System/360 assembler, but the
order of magnitude is correct.) Multiply by the number of banks,
insurance companies, and brokerages.
