We need to get over the hump to the point where we can use tools to build our tools.

in thread (OT): 200-year software
One of the main problems here is that software evolves so fast, that tools based on languages in use today, are nearly worthless very quickly. If there were a very good tool for creating complex software, but it was based on Cobol, very few programmers would use it.
Even so, if someone could create such a software "brick maker" it might extend the life of the language used to build it.
