15 I don't think the problem is so much in the principle of making a change,
16 or even the specifics of any particular permutation of change, it's who
17 gets to manage and implement the change in a maintainable fashion, and who
18 has to deal with the fallout of any changes occurring where a particular
19 scenario 'slips through the net'....
21 If you can convince the latter people that there is no problem arising from
22 making said changes, and you ensure that there genuinely *is* minimal
23 impact (by whatever means) then you stand a much better chance of this
24 change actually being implemented ..
