Any manual procedure is prone to error. I prefer to automate things as much
as possible, to minimize the possibility of human error. Any time I see a
manual process, I wonder how it could be automated.

I'm *not* saying that one tool, or even a variety of canned tools, will do
the job - the automation could be as simple as a batch file or script that
issues the appropriate commands in the correct sequence (with appropriate
error checking).
