I would hazard to suggest that the developer who gives up his free time to 
maintain the code is most qualified to make such decisions. If the code is 
causing bugs to pile up and the effort to fix it is far greater than any gain 
in  functionality, then it goes. Whether the effort is in fact greater is 
highly subjective, and only the person who is hacking on the code can truly 
judge. It is after all his time and his effort he's weighing in the balance.
