Correct, although I've had projects that were killed by changes to
requirements - such as my fantastic system for writing device drivers
that leveraged DEBUG.EXE to translate assembly code into machine code,
and a REXX script to handle jump labels and such. That project was
quite thoroughly finished on the day that I met nasm :)

But that's quite off-topic.
