Synopsis Invited Feedback Importance (/10, author rated :-) )
An application of statistical mechanics which assuming that software defects are conserved in a design along with typical defect models with component size, directly implies that the macroscopic property of component size distributions in systems will obey a Pareto power-law distribution.

Extensive analysis of systems in C, Fortran and Tcl find precisely this behaviour.

The paper's title changed to the above in the version to be published. The published version also benefits from some excellent feedback from its reviewers and is structured rather differently.
