That was our idea too, but if you think about it, it takes as many person
hours to supervise/check up on all those options as it does to actually do
the job. 

Options double the work. Always.

By getting rid of the options the work gets done faster and simpler. People
who don't fit the schedule, do other jobs. One person who gets home from
work on Saturdays about 12:00 does the final damp mop of the halls when
everyone else is gone.
