	As a contrast to a 'big bang' change, whereby we have a 'make or break'
type event, with some broken state of master for months, and the
potential for endless slippage :-)

	Instead, we want to do a large number of small, incremental changes
each of which is complete, safe, and leaves the product in a broadly
ship-able state (modulo minor regressions we can catch in the normal

	So - essentially, just our normal development flow, but changing the
things we've not been able to change in the past :-)
