Another problem is that any piece of software will, at best, do exactly
what it was designed to do. If the design contains oversights so will
the resultant software. There have been a number of cases reported with
military aviation software. One that sticks in my mind was a complex
weight/balance/weapons release subsystem that did not check to see if
the aircraft was in inverted flight before releasing pylon-mounted
bombs under the wings.
