"It may be badly implemented, but the previous system was really old, ugly, brittle and cumbersome."

Old? Not really. I'm older than init and I'm not old. Or am I? Hmmm ...

Ugly? Not at all! Quite elegant, in fact. (Insert "eye of the beholder" stuff here.)

Brittle? Hardly. Its as robust as the administrator makes it.

Cumbersome? Not even close. It's actually quite nimble ... But then when I ice-dance with my Wife, I wear my hockey skates ... maybe I'm seeing it from an orthogonal point of view :-)
