at least one rail more than is needed.
I know we always like to say it'll be easier to do it now than it
will be to do it later. Not likely. I plan to be smarter later than
I am now, so I think it'll be just as easy later, maybe even easier.
Why pay now when we can pay later?

is batch pull, not continuous pull. Instead of a sprint, XP
calls it an iteration. In XP, like scrum, but not kanban, each
story has a high level estimate attached to it during release
planning, which is similar, but somewhat different from
backlog grooming in scrum.
