Yes, I was asking what the requirements are for regression testing
modifications if need be.  Normally this isn't a good thing, and causes
problems all around for some time (new branch until working again).  But
in some instances the modifications are small enough not to pull a domino
effect.  I think everyone knows that anyway.
