Booby traps not necessary

The majority of places I've worked where this kind of thing happened, (including my current one) don't really require leaving nasty surprises behind, the environments are usually so complex and full of legacy equipment and systems that you just can't do knowledge transfer in enough detail without literally downloading your head to the net.

Takes years to acquire all that local knowledge, can't be transferred in 3 Skype sessions....
