Let me put this tactfully...

The programming project is being managed by an outside "big-bucks"
consulting big, they have PGA Golf Tournaments named
after them. They are behind...very behind. Everytime someone says
"but it should work here too", their response is "It's not in the
requirements documentation (which they wrote), we'll classify it as
an enhancement for the next release (when we won't be around to worry
about it)".

Does that make it any clearer?
