B.t.w. what is brannennizing, and how could this prevent cracking?

"Brannenizing" is a shorthand term for having your instrument worked on by
Bill Brannen in Evanston, Illinois. He adjusts it, replaces pads, adds teflon
bumpers, balances the keys, etc. The horn feels wonderful when he's done, but
I don't understand how anything he does would prevent cracking.
