    Yes - we break things all the time. But we take notice, when we are
    breaking things, of how long standing and deeply embedded they are.

    The deeper the roots, the more respect we show it, and the harder
    it will be to change.

    Heaping scorn on someone who is reluctant to change something as
    deeply embedded as "a file is a byte stream" does not further the
    discussion.
