Do Cameras get better with time?

It comes up over and over again how good old cameras (epecially the E-1) are. They seem like the image quality is almost always "good enough". Now this in large part due to the fact that they were very good cameras when they came out, but just out of curiosity does anyone know how much improvements in editing software have helped image quality?

I believe lightroom (ACR) is on their third RAW developing engine (hence lightroom 3). Does anyone have information on how much newer RAW engines have improved the output of older cameras like the E-1. Has their image quality gotten substantially better due to software since their release?
