in reply to Balancing Coding Time And Code Quality

Assuming my circumstances and code, what would you do now?

For what it's worth...

My rule of thumb is to hang onto all one-offs in a separate folder from the rest of my "production" scripts. If the same problem comes up again, then I look into cleaning it up assuming that if I need it twice, then I'll probably need it a third time (and beyond).

I also toss in some comments with keywords that I may want to search for in the future. That helps me get through the clutter of the one-off folder. In practice, I treat the one-off folder like you do your template file. That's my guess at least.
