I need to disagree a bit: I believe in "grow or die", but grow
doesn't need to be in quantity. So, if we get better and better (and
our tools easier to work with, etc) we also grow but in quality. (And
if I compare squeeze with sarge I can see lots of differences where
looking back I always think "oh, this obviously was quite painful".)

(Of course, this supports everything else you said.)
