Even if previously well-maintained, the value of code without the developers
who wrote/maintained it is often $0.
Even if well-maintained and knowledgeable developers available, if in "needs
to be rewritten" state, value is $0.
(In fact, often when code crosses the "needs to be rewritten" line, the
value of the company is $0. ;-)
