Well, when I worked in one company, which had good standing on the mobile 
market at that time, we had a six month cycle and we had 2-4 weeks for 
actual coding. Actually, we finished earlier because when we started 
coding, we already knew every line of code out of our heads. It was so well 
planned, reviewed and discussed for 3 months before that actual coding was 
not development, it really was plain dull coding. And we had very few bugs 
with this approach. This is was server software, which was sold to telecoms 
for many thousands euro.

Sadly this way of "coding" is rarely used. It was the most effective way of 
developing software in my life.
