If they're convinced that it's not worth doing ever - then you're wasting 
your own time.  They may think it's not worth a lot of effort over the 
immediate future but if the effort is spread thinly and integrated into 
regular infrastructure upgrades over a longer period of time then that's 
an easier pill to swallow.
