Thanks for the info, Karsten.  Sad but very relevant and informative.

(This is also one of the reasons why I didn't try very hard to make
things public, from previous replies I feared that incompatible changes
would come at some point.)

For me, having to rebuild is not a problem, as long as the machines do
the job, but if we're back to square one as some people mention in the
thread, that'll really hurt.  Untangling all circular deps and so on is
a *major* hassle.
