I would like to make the point that, if you include sufficient
documentation then someone else has a chance of taking up where you
leave off.

I've seen one or two pieces of 'abandonware' that might have been
small enough for me to do a little work on, but couldn't even start as
I didn't have a clue *why* some things were done.

I know it's the most hated part of any project, but I really wish
people would write down a reasonable overview including what decisions
made been made and why, such as:

I used method foo instead of bar because although it's not as pretty it
handles crap input better.
