Hot, hot, hot, Hyman! Promises are made to be broken, therefore the contract laws provide the remedies. The contract laws recognize a concept called "efficient breach" which *encourages* breach of (enforcable) obligations if it's economically efficient to do so. Compliance with contract obligations is almost always voluntary -- if you choose not to comply, then you don't have to. You merely have to compensate the non-breaching party for his expectancy interest. Hint: damages.
