> You can NEVER issue the lilo command too often.

Just remember that lilo reinstalls the boot sequence, including the
MBR, if that's where you put it. So, if something goes wrong, Linux
may not boot, and you'll get some practice using the rescue floppy
(which you have made and tested ahead of time, right?). There are
reasons to run lilo, but you don't need to run it gratuitously.
