Reminds me (in a negative sense) of my dealings with
a British computer manufacturer many years ago.  Whenever
one made a suggestion to them for improvements to their
software, the response was invariably :

"Thank you for your suggestion.  We agree that this would
  result in a significant improvement to our software, but
  we do not feel that this improvement should be made in
  isolation -- rather, we feel that we should make major
  changes to all the code in this area.  Unfortunately we do
  not have the resources to tackle this, so we regret that
  on this occasion we will not be able to adopt your suggestion."
