3 years and counting while everyone rings their hands and debates this
trivial issue.

3 years and counting while hundreds of builders encounter this problem
wasting countless of hours troubleshooting, possibly re-reporting the

Software is not a religion - but many software developers believe it is.

This issue could have been solved 3 years ago and more time spent on
other issues that really matter. Or you can spend the next 3 years
debating the fanatically correct way to solve this problem.

entire build process, introducing more problems and take a few more
years to implement and release.
