I don't understand why it consumed any time at all. The change being
requested was literally a one-word change to zone.tab that would have
impacted nothing. My theory (and the basis for my perhaps overly
strongly worded earlier post calling that original change a blunder) is
that it was your pride, since you had made the change that it would have
reversed in the first place, but even that is only guesswork.
