In my eyes it does and I'm the one who has to make the final decision. So if 
all fails I'll just revert to "it'll happen because I say so". Maybe I should 
say that more often, would save time (I am _totally_ kidding just in case 
it's not apparent).

Now the interesting part: did you undo the changes you made no matter how good 
they were (or are) in your opinion? Or maybe you provided two versions: one 
with the old way, one with the new way?
