That would be a useful compromise. How about the second half, which is to not
patch anything during the unpacking of the package? Maybe this could be
combined in a single ‘no-patch’ option, or an alias like ’3.0 (simple)’?

Does that mean that the use of options discussed above may become forbidden in
