      In such situations, I don't know anything better to do than to fall back
      on traditional estimation methods: take your best guess, triple the
      number, and increment the unit of measurement. E.g., if it looks like 6
      weeks work at first glance, tell them 18 months. It's surprising how
      accurate that is. :-)
