Unfortunately when you start dealing with the details, this is not
something that can be evolved over time - it requires a revolution
meaning that a new infrastructure has to be rolled out. The good thing
is that the base support we need is really not difficult and has
absolutely no impact on convergence with anything else.

Remember, KISS really stands for "keep it as simple as possible but no
simpler".
