A project manager's worst nightmare:

"Sorry boss, but we're just not going to be able to meet that  
deadline, because, well, a language extension we were using was  
dropped from the language, and the syntax for some core operators was  
changed. Not only is our code broken, but many of the libraries we  
were using are broken. Don't worry, though, we're 'agile', so our unit  
tests will tell us when our code is working again."

Big business demands stability.
