Oh good god, isn't that the truth.  What makes it worse is when people 
refuse to believe the person who made it up when he tells them it was 
all made up, and they carry on insisting it is in fact still 
carefully-designed and the real truth is that the designer must actually 
have some nefarious scheme in mind or something.  I have no idea how to 
deal with these situations any more. I think David is right here, but if 
we're not implementing the "Reviewed" part yet, then we can kick it into 
the long grass, although we do need some idea of where we're going with 
it, because having some sort of destination will shape the route a 
little easier.
