Software systems usually have the same basic architectural pattern as their earlier incarnations, manifesting in decreasingly refined forms as we move back in time. Similarly, when a new problem confronts us, we try many different approaches, but over time, for the same kind of problem, solutions tend to converge to the same, more constrained, solution space.
