      Sometimes you just have to stop holding on with both hands, both feet, and your tail, to get someplace better. 
      Of course you might plummet to the earth and die, but probably not: you were made for this.

      Ron, that's only half true. Once the change hits the integration server, the rest of the process up through deployment is a production line, and benefits from the same manufacturing concepts as any other manufacturing process.

      I suspect a lot of shops might benefit from this notion.
