Luis was not attacking you for the breakage, merely asking that it be fixed,
and noting that we ought to try our best to keep CVS testable and buildable
as much as possible. It's a worthy goal, but there's little need to put up
straw man arguments when we don't reach it.

It's okay to break the tree every now and then. It's also okay to point it
out to maintainers and others so we can get it back on track.
