I probably skipped right over that thread, but I'd like to suggest
another example: python-orbit. One source package builds three binary
Python modules, for Python 1.5, 2.1 and 2.2, which was very unnatural
to do at first.
I seem to remember there was something I wasn't exactly proud of in
there, but I might very well have fixed it afterwards. Should you
choose to pick that example, be sure to tell me so I'll make extra
sure the build process is as nice and clean as possible.
A lesson for you all: never fall in love during a total eclipse.
