Whether the answer is yes or no, I strongly suggest using Smart. It's doing
everything you mention above. I've been using it throughout the whole 10.1
lifetime, and now on 10.2, it's really simple and powerful.
I agree that it is possible to make mistakes, but if you check what's going
to be done before clicking "OK", you should be fine.
