comment What hurts maintainability?
"the less of it you have the better" - logical extrapolation is to have NO code and thus solve ALL your maintenance issues. Seriously, though, your nutshell summary is an argument for keeping code as DRY as possible; and for refactoring as part of the development and maintenance cycles.
