I thought they were kinda sorta designed to make this easy?  I seem to
recall
some of the Dallas parts even have available battery replacements, where you
can remove the old battery and attach the new, which snaps onto the IC
somehow?

Of course, given how part availability works these days, I'd expect to
retool
the snap-on carrier to allow me to put batteries elsewhere, as surely no-one
will
even admit to having heard of the things by the time you need the new
battery.
