Thanks, but the problem is that we have hundreds of sites managed by
developers of varying abilities ranging from excellent to incompetent moron
If they were all using common scripts it wouldn't be as much of an issue,
but a lot of these guys are really "bright" and "program" their own scripts 

Justin Mason's blog has an interesting entry on the current issue:
