Reconfiguration problems arise when we wish to find a step-by-step
transformation between two feasible solutions of a problem such that all
intermediate results are also feasible. We demonstrate that a host of
reconfiguration problems derived from NP-complete problems are
PSPACE-complete, while some are also NP-hard to approximate. In contrast,
several reconfiguration versions of problems in P are solvable in polynomial
