I assume the goal is to make it fail on the developer's system, on
build daemons, whenever random developers unpack the package (to, for
examples, fix bugs in it), and only at the last phase on the user's
system. The point is to make it as likely as possible to make it 
break, if it breaks at all, so that when the user sees the package,
it is already non-broken.
