Sure, I see what you are saying, & it's a real trap, especially if the
existing app is a 'successful' one. Totally agree that it's not a bad idea
to reinvent the wheel, in fact somewhere in the process a spark might ignite
leading to an entirely fresh road.

I guess 'early in the process' in my setting (academic) is kind of
misleading, gives the impression of being the start of a longish time
period; the reality is the project is wrapped in about 12 weeks, so it
really helps to be clear of what one intends to do sooner rather than later.
