As a fellow consultant, I feel it is our duty to present the options. Perhaps advocate strongly for one, but only in as much as it is what the client needs, not what we want to do. In this regard we are shoulder to shoulder. Nice to hear from consultants who think this way. Too many consultants advocate for what they want, or at least that is the appearance.
Love the literary comment (though I would not have "gotten" it without the references from the more learned, and a Google assist).
