Depends where you are in the experience range I guess (and how keen you are to do it). I've done it (for something adhoc) (not cross-level), and moved on, thinking "I've done that, so I can do it again". And I suppose I was building on a fair bit of time spent understanding bstat/estat.

And I guess it was at least as helpful as giving 'awk' as a one-word answer.
