7 I suspect that is the gist of it. I work with numerous systems that
8 have audit trails that are subject to regulation, and it is pretty
9 typical that the way to "correct" an audit trail entry is to add an
10 additional audit trail entry (with the old entry still being there -
11 perhaps with a pointer to the new entry). There is no shame in
12 admitting that you made a mistake - the kinds of people who audit these
13 systems look at a lack of mistakes as evidence that something is being
14 hidden.
