"7500 is silly" equally applies to the "quick" (and sloppy, if I am reading your "Failing in this direction doesn't make me feel great." correctly) approach, I think, which argues for not taking either change X-<. I agree that the fallout from the inaccuracy of "quick" approach is probably acceptable and the next "fetch" will correct it anyway, so let's do the "quick but inaccurate" for now and perhaps cook it in 'next' for a bit longer than other topics?
