throw a major spanner into the works

Yes, there absolutely could be. The 777 isn't even a composite airframe, but weak composite/graphite floor beams prevented cargo conversions. The same could turn out to be the case for the 787 and A350 (and I'm thinking the nature of how 787 fuselage barrels are made in one piece could throw a major spanner into the works too).

Is the last part of the quote a flowery description for "could cause severe problems in the alteration process"?
