Actually, if it renders the system useless if you don't do that, it's
one hell of a big price to pay if you've spent many hours configuring
the system and have come to depend upon using it, and HP decides to
say "screw that" to VMS or to the hobbyist licensing. ...and if you
don't have to do it in order to keep using the system, what's the
point in bothering?
