Yikes ... having to start green field and drop history from the last
several years seems quite unfortunate.  It kind of sounds like "too much
work to be worth it" to me, but I'm just on the sidelines here.

combining efforts was the only acceptable outcome.  I'm happy with
whatever you all end up deciding is most helpful overall.
