Remember that generally vendors will not support user-modified source
code, even if you have purchased the source.

                What's wrong with running the vendor's new version
through the same
                converter and comparing that with your modified version?

                There are a lot of us in the same situation, possibly a
large majority. We
                may also be using productivity aids such as J.D.
Edwards' case tool.
                There's not much point in running the output from that
through the
                converter IMO.
