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?
