And it is a waste of CPU, bandwidth, and time for everyone to rebuild
packages simply to remove a worthless 4kB file. There is no reason not
to wait for a proper rebuild to be actually required. As you can see,
out of my 12 packages on that TODO list, in just 20 days, only two have
not yet had another rebuild opportunity...
