We had a similar case last year where we changed the layout of a document to
accomodate a requested change to document formatting. I couldn't come up
with a good reason to not do this.

It took us about 3 hours. Then there were some more changes, and just one

And then we were asked to put to document back in its original format.

Because of my suspicious nature, I had tracked the time involved. It cost
over $500 to make "this one little change."

Now I have a report to tell people why I don't want to make little changes.
