No. You have to open a different tin can. You have to cut and solder  
different cables. The test procedure is different.

We want to make sure that every fix we offer really works, is  
reproducible and has high quality. Therfore, it is not "just" doing  
the same thing again.

The common work is of course the logistics which is done only once.

Nobody is required to ask for the reworks at all...

We are a community. Therfore, you are free (and I hope open) to come  
up with your own, cheaper offers...
