>That's just outright ignoring all science and engineering applications outside of academia/academic research.

What % of scientific code do you think is written outside the areas this paper surveyed? Having been on both sides, I find that the majority of numerical code, especially anything more complex than simple math (which is almost always written poorly outside academic areas), is written/developed by academics, and the results adopted as libs in engineering.
