        I disagree about this one. This is a violation of a must rule in
 policy, and there is no reason to not fix it (since a mekfile can call
 anything you need it to). Seems like the violators are mostly vdr
 related (and leave, which was last checked against ancient policy
 version 3.6.0).

        If you want bugs filed, OK, sure. Need to do something when
 bored with job interview prep.
