While I see where you're going with this, part of the reason 
for the current emergency procedure structure was to solicit 
alternative fixes for an emergency, rather than an "either 
this or nothing" fix.

Any way to build alternatives in?  I mean, presumably, if it's 
really an emergency, people will want to see it fixed, and 
it's just a question of how?
