Me: You mean we've delayed this tool for several weeks because we've not been able to add a feature they didn't ask for?
Him: Yes, but ...
Me: And we could add this feature they didn't ask for, but we didn't use the software which could support this unrequested feature because it fails to support another feature they didn't ask for?
Him: Well, yeah.
It's really fun working for the BBC, but the occasional lack of focus can be frustrating at times :)
