    For example, we can make sure that the code in question that actually
    touches the hardware stays exactly the same, and then just move the
    interfaces around - and basically guarantee that _zero_ hardware-specific
    issues pop up when you switch over, for example.

    That way there is a gradual change-over.

    The other approach (which would be nice _too_) is to actually try to
    convert one clock source at a time. Why is that not an option?
