Then you are looking at the wrong kind of organization.  The bank I worked for
had something over 100MLOC of locally written proprietary Cobol code
at the time of their 1998-99 inventory for Y2K.  (Some small amount
of this was actually not Cobol but System/360 assembler, but the
order of magnitude is correct.)  Multiply by the number of banks,
insurance companies, and brokerages.
