The mess is inextricably linked and the only way to fix it is to let all entities go down and reboot with a new set of rules.

Installing new operating systems usually takes some period of time. What's your estimate of how long it would take to reboot with a new set of rules given the following steps?

1. Write the new rules
2. Get consensus on the new rules
3. Write the code & test
4. Distribute the code
5. Install and trouble shoot
6. Install and troubleshoot applications
7. Return to productive work
