Insurance = costs. Furthermore, 1:100 sounds quite a bit too
astronomical. I'd say that depending on the kind of the problem 1:3
to 1:10 is reasonable and fits well to the experience of others. E.g.,
the Erlang developers also report productivity gains in this range on
large-scale commercial projects. OCaml will most likely have similar
ratios.
