Software which is Done

Some things are done. They met the requirements and the only changes
ever needed again will be if the requirements change (which is
unlikely) or there is a bug. Subversion and tortoisesvn for example.
They were done. They're still actively developed. They're being
changed all the time to introduce new features and unneeded
complexity. TortoiseSVN abandoned the requirement that it be simple
and instead crudded up the GUI. It must take a great leader to say
"ok, lets shelve our best work and find something new". Cause that's
what they should have done.
