Not knowing what your projects are... I would ask: Is such a degree of
concordance really that important that it's worth spending so much
time and energy on it? Is it essential to the application's function?
If that is the case, if that is the most important thing, one has to
wonder if this is the best tool to use for your application.  Perhaps
a lower-level developement environment would be better? Or a higer
one? Word macros?
