I got told that on an almost daily basis whenever I go out to an existing
community which has already invested in SQL or XQuery. I am sure most of
us here are realistic enough to realize that we are nimble and flexible

costs us little more than a quick 'vi' on a few parser files to avoid
stepping on toes.
