a very wise man[1] once said adding more bodies to a late project just 
makes it later.   9 women can't make a baby in 1 month.

this is NOT a software development project, where pieces of it can be 
torn off and worked on independently, then later integrated.   this is a 
software build-and-integrate project where all the pieces have to be fit 
together and the bulk of the hard work is reverse engineering and 
recreating the correct build environment.

later, this book's fundamental premises are just as valid.
