4 a day? If your code is clean enough that a programmer can do 4 a day
then your code is probably already fixed.  Otherwise I'd bet you will find
there are sources missing, or misplaced, level-check problems, files with
bad dates, conversion problems that are not as simple as expected, and old
programs that no one has looked at in 5 years and don't make sense.  Add
in to that time for training sessions, vacations, days that don't go
right, and employee turn-over and you'll be lucky to average 2 a day,
imho.
