I'm more than a little surprised that you are regularly compiling packages on maintenance windows (as opposed to application deployment) , pinning objects can (and should IMO) be done via a startup trigger and a control table. However having said all that I'd most likely achieve a quiet maintenance window by ensuring all DBA access is via services and not having the services autostart. A blunter instrument would be to keep the listener(s) down
