battery desoldering advice

I need to replace the battery in an item I have. It's the quartersized/style 
one. The way it is attached to the board, is via a clip arrangement that 
you'd swear makes the battery removable. However, it is in fact soldered or 
spot welded into the clip somehow. As a result, I'd rather not just cut the 
clip arms to replace the battery as I'd have trouble getting the new one in.

The only possibility I see is unsoldering the clip from the battery, but it 
strikes me as a rather bad idea to put a soldering iron to a battery.
