I am content to not-care as much as I please. This is a workflow
issue, I am not obligated to get on my hobby horse over it, unless
someone is actually physically unable to adjust their workflow. (Like
the guy compiling for a chroot on android, who found an acceptable
workaround and incidentally was very polite about the whole thing
despite, unusually enough, having a legitimate problem.)
