Changing the original estimate

Is there any way to change the original estimate?  We have situations where the first estimate is a ball park, and then we come back and 'true' up the original before work gets underway.  We could of course use the notes field, but we would like to use, and more to the point, edit the original estimate date.  any ideas??

Thats what the current estimate field is for....

Enter the original estimate in their, and once you get a better idea of the true estimate, modify the current estimate field.

With the idea being to help you improve your estimates by reviewing the original number to see how off base you were.. at least that's how i use it.
