9th century incremental development

Appreciation of the incremental, pragmatic approach used in Agile Development from the annals of history:

"The just man builds on a modest foundation and gradually proceeds to greater things." - unknown circa 9th  century.

This saying is used by Asser to describe the philosophy of learning of King Alfred the Great.

* 'just man' may also be more modernly translated as 'man with sound judgement'.
