I'll use your example: I've seen companies start life as Access databases and make plenty of money, and then pay for the proper rewrite out of the revenues generated, instead of doing it the "right way" up front. (when the costs to do it up front may have resulted in a failure to launch)

I don't think it's the type of debt that's the issue, as much as how you manage it.
