You're completely right of course. The issue with not refactoring is that every error condition is slightly (or, in a few cases, vastly) different. The deadlines are on the order of hours, not days or weeks, and it'll take some thought on how to reorganize the code so that these slight variations can be handled from a few functions. It's not so much fail-and-log or fail-and-die. This is "fail and connect to different db to pull out sensible defaults for unset fields in existing database but only if called in a certain context".

In other words a nightmare. But your point stands that if I can refactor now, the extra ten minutes is probably worth it.
