comment Ruby on Rails and DRY
Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) is a presentation pattern common in WPF (.net). True, it's not a Ruby pattern, but it is an example of how a pattern and / or architecture can encourage the violation of DRY. SRP stands for Single Responsibility Principle: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_responsibility_principle .

I think this idea can work, especially if some of the small changes can be made without too much disruption of the status quo.

comment Change management's mind?
Organizations can be dysfunctional in a way where things appear to be successful even when they are not. Example: A project ships on time, but is a huge pain to maintain. If management thinks painful maintenance is a fact of life, the project will be viewed as a success.
