Again, how many weren't systems you're responsible for? I have no doubt that you took care of the problems that you encountered personally when you wrote the tool. I've seen a lot of problems on systems in the wild that don't exist on my systems, but I don't expect that every one of our users is a debian developer; sometimes other people solve problems in a way that we didn't really expect or plan for them to.

Let's restate this so it can stand clearly on its own:

"We ran into some unanticipated issues when we usrmerged our build systems, and we think the way to fix that is to force merge every one of our users' systems."
