Not always good enough.  A lot of packages depend on jade (transitively or
directly).  To build jade on ia64, I had to comment out one line.  This is
clearly not a suitable fix for all architectures, nor is it necessary
for any other architecture -- I suspect it's a bizarre compiler quirk.
So I filed #103192, uploaded and moved on.

Revolutions do not require corporate support.
