In the recent past there have been times when non-backward-compatible 
changes were made to userlang tools, but the kernel was updated in such a 
way that it could support both the old and new toolsets.  In those 
situations, doing a "make installworld" (the second half of "make world") 
would replace your userland with tools that were unable to work with the 
current running kernel unless you'd rebooted in the meantime.

The long, correct method takes a bare minimum of additional work over the 
proposed, dangerous method.  What's the point?
