But in some ways, having uncompilable code is a *good* thing, because it tells you exactly where you need to work on the architecture. Just updating it to *compile* removes that safeguard -- will you remember/re-find all those places where it *used* to block and convert the architecture to workaround the blocking?
I guess I'm saying: what exactly does updating it to compile get for us, if we know the code still won't work? It seems like all we'll be doing is removing the grep-able places where we *know* we'll have to do work in the future.
