That you do a `cvs update' with dread, not knowing how many unproductive
hours lie ahead before you can get back to doing real work on Emacs.

That you will thus procrastinate updating Emacs, and suffer
dissatisfaction from not doing the Right Thing.

That working on Emacs is less fun than it might be, and that this has
thus gone way down on your personal hacking priority list.

Am I right?
