Emacs is not occupational therapy.

Apart from that: renaming files in CVS is not "sufficiently low cost".
Man weeks of discussion are not "sufficiently low cost".  Supervising
people to monitor 8.3 restrictions time and again is not "sufficiently
low cost".  If the benefits are irrelevant and we are just talking about
a way to spend the time, playing arcade games is more fun.
