Some people recommend doing the two-engineer thing even where you reverse engineer by observing the effect of the program. Reason: Engineer #1 had a copy of the code in his possession, so someone might be able to (incorrectly) make a case that he copied it. Engineer #2 never had access to the code, so he's untouchable.
