Well, not all tech writing consists of software documentation. But I'll let that slide. I never said I would use the word in technical writing at all. I was just trying to correct a misapprehension, which seems to be prevalent among the people who have contributed to the thread, that till can only be a verb having to do with turning the soil or a noun representing a cash drawer and that 'til is what you write when you mean until and want to say it informally.
