That's just life.  When building a house, sometimes people make
mistakes with insufficient foundations and someone else later has to
do expensive underpinning work.  It sucks, but it's the penalty for
being a race of imperfect beings.

I have just spent a lot of time tracking down what I thought was a gcj
problem -- it turned out in the end to be a linker bug.  C'est la vie.
