Contrariwise, what if your employer wants you to discourage a particular
direction?

Leaving one's employer at the door is an ideal.  Unfortunately, reality
has this nasty habit of barging in and dropping phrases like 'undue
influence' on the one side and 'worth your job' on the other.

A package that has only N developers, all of who work for the same
company.. how reliable would anyone assume the practices of 'do it
for the greater good' and 'don't implement it if there are problems'
to be?  Regardless of facts, there are likely to be perception issues.
