In my case, there are no customers.

In my case, about every three months.

I am writing very small sets of command-line programs (up to 20,000 lines by 
now, but that includes some modules which can be re-used.)

The use of existing libraries will greatly improve the capabilities of these 
systems, but only when it allows the code to remain simple and compact.

I basically see this as a bunch of prototype programs, parts of which will get 
used for future projects, but each project is going to be slightly different, 
so the programs will be started nearly from scratch each time (I am working 
toward a more generic system, but this will take a long time and it is only 
me doing the programming.)
