Denial - I can't believe they would have built it like that!
Anger - What! They're complete morons! No-one in their right mind would program it like that! It's O(n^3)!
Bargaining - Maybe we can use a simple patch to the existing systems to adapt to them....
Depression - There's no point, we might as well hire 1000 monkeys to type in random parameters and just filter out the correct ones!
Acceptance - Throw more hardware at it! Double the system requirements! Moore's law is on our side! Here's a perl script to act as a sanity wrapper around their functionality.
