   I think this is bad advice to someone who doesn't already understand
   what happens and why.  They probably won't be in a position to fix
   problems resulting from breaking assumptions about what's preloaded.

i usually advise people to learn things since i don't really know the
end answer myself (and am also in perpetual learning mode).  perhaps
they can study things and learn what happens and why before introducing
problems.  i find that breaking things (non-permanently :-) is also a
pretty good way to learn.

so, this advice was meant as from one student to another, which is
understandably debatable as to its goodness.
