	I would have thought it was simpe to distinguish between these
 cases.  In once case, policy has provided a rule which packages and
 people can depend upon, and changing it would require much Pan And
 Suffering.

	In the other case, there is an attempt being made to add on to
 the set of rules mandated by policy, removing which, as you have
 seen, results in Much Pain And Suffering.

	I am merely trying to minimize the Pain And Suffering.
