That grim theatre at the start of a project where people embark on paths
they know (if they think about it) will lead to failure - but they do it
anyway because, well, that's what you do.

It's as if there a superstition that you have to pretend these things
will work to appease the gods of project management - who knows how bad
it might be if you go out of your way to piss them off?
