G'day all.

As you well know, only one COBOL program has ever been written.  The
rest are just modifications of it.

Actually, a more interesting problem is what you'd replace COBOL with,
and how you'd go about it.  Wouldn't it be nice if there was a modern
language that you could write or rewrite new parts of your COBOL
application in, and it all worked seamlessly with what you already had?
