Creating a task list is a great start if you then start executing the
tasks. But creating a task list and not proceeding to execute them
won't help because things change. If somebody decides to tackle the
job a year from now, they will have to revisit the whole thing anyhow.
I guess I shouldn't say that it won't help at all. It will a help a
little, in that it will provide yet another starting place for that
hypothetical person a year from now. But it won't help very much.
It's not the hard part of the problem.
