If you could do a suitably fuzzy search of the older archives for "a list
admin set the Base URL wrong and we can't do anything" you would see lots

It used to be much too easy to create havoc by making a faulty change.  Now
it's a little to hard to make a correct change.

Seemingly, no one has felt moved to create code that would vette an
attempted change and forestall the fatal errors.  I don't want to attempt
