"only [...] recompilation". Please provide details on the number of packages
this affects. The last gnutls change affected 400+ packages (KDE, GNOME,
cups, ...) and tooks months to sort out. More importantly, many end user
applications were broken in the meantime as processes that happened to pull
in both the old and the new version of gnutls crashed horribly. Is there any
reason to assume this new transition will go faster and smoother?

Lately, the only thing keeping me from being a serial killer is my distaste
for manual labor.
