I think it will continue for as long as technology allows it to do so.

If we end up completely locked out of our own machines it could be an issue, otherwise it's an important codebase that I have a feeling people will at the very least maintain for many generations.

How / where it gets used might change significantly over the years, as you've already seen over the past few the project has evolved significantly, and that was in no small part to ensure it remains relevant and attractive to new coders with different interests.

I kinda hope I'm not still working on it in 20 years from now, there's a point where it would be nice to just be able to relax and see where things go, but I didn't think I'd still be involved this far down the line in the first place ;-)
