Skunkware Triumphs!

"Skunkware" is an Apple Computer term for applications which have been dropped from development. Apparently working to revive beloved skunkware is a popular pasttime for Apple software engineers. These guys, though, took it to new heights: they were fired, but kept coming to work anyway; their badges were cancelled, but they snuck in the building; they got other people to volunteer considerable time and resources to help them, and in the end, triumphed.

There's a movie in there, somewhere.

Fantastic story! Definitely sounds like a Pixar movie--and they'd have fun with it.
