Orion Repair Visits to Webb?

Here's Looking at You, Universe, Washington Post

"What if [Webb Space Telescope] doesn't unfold? Isn't that too far away to fix? Ed Weiler, head of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, revealed the surprising answer at a news conference next to the mock-up: Astronauts might actually make the million-mile hike to service the telescope. Perhaps that's the future of the space program: Astronauts going into outer space not to plant flags and leave footprints and hit golf balls in low gravity and whatnot, but to service the expensive hardware that a space-faring and curious civilization requires."
