I'm not sure all projects are meant to live a decade or more. I think a better metric is whether you can patch/update a project over its lifetime (whatever that is) without costs skyrocketing or without having that "oh crap, all the original developers have left the team so now no one knows the code anymore!" moments.

Sadly, what I have noticed is that everyone knows how to write good code, everyone can criticize for hours past projects they have worked on on how poorly written the code was, yet when push comes to shove the first thing that get thrown under the bus is quality.
