In oour projects, some idiot in the distant past decided it would be a good idea to combine the Kendo, jquery, and jquery-ui scripts into a single monolithic file.
We have 20 apps that we maintain, and I've counted FOUR different versions of this file so far. All of them use different versions of the three scripts mentioned, and NONE of them can be used within apps that don't already use them.
All of the scripts mentioned are at LEAST six years old, and because they're "composited" (that's how the rest of the team refers to it), it would be VERY difficult to update any of the script components. We won't even go into the need for complete and total regression testing.
So, I'll see your scare, and raise you two terrifying's.

Do you have some problem with me? You sure seem to go out of your way to be negative to my posts. If so let it out. Passive aggression isn't healthy. Maybe that wasn't targeted at me but others seem to have to been.
On a completely unrelated but similarly nerdy front... One of the colleagues of John Nash (the mentally troubled mathematician from A Beautiful Mind) wrote a letter to someone which said something roughly like:
He's as annoying as X, as egotistical as Y, for arbitrary X and Y.
