> I thought COBOL died with Y2K, how much COBOL development still goes on?

They're not called legacy systems for nothing :-)  Seriously, most large 
corporations still have a ton of COBOL apps.  We're in the process of migrating 
to Java and open systems, but it'll be a few years (decades?) until everything 
gets moved off, and in the meantime you've got maintenance, changes in business 
processes, integrating acquisitions, etc. that require changes to those legacy 
systems.  And changes in a large corporate environment mean some kind of change 
management process, including version control.  Hence my original question.
