Alan, please, I only wrote that something was currently relying on
manual maintenance, that the number of people doing this manual
maintenance was decreasing, and that the usual result of something
needing to be done and not being done is breakage. These are simple

It may be that it's easy to write code to replace the current system
with something better but this code is not being written right now and
thus does not change a bit about the current trend.

I'm sorry if stating this offends you.
