I'm wondering how we as a community are evolving our RPG IV skills.

When we come across a legacy ("time-tested") application that needs a modification, do we convert the code to free format and then add the updates or do you leave it as-is and write the new code to match the style of the existing code?

I find myself torn nearly every time I come across such a situation. Often the time constraint is what guides my decision making.

How about you?
