I think this is something most people ignore. The value of an item is not just a function of the amount of time spent developing it. If 100 (or whatever) people were willing to spend a total of $5000 for this hack, does it really matter how many hours the programmers spent working on it? Shouldn't the time spent developing their skills also be considered?
