Yes, I guess our priorities don't match.  I've been in "make world"
mode since the b20 days; I needed to build some core development
packages and package additional (possibly unmaintained) packages.
And, I didn't want to do too much manual work for each update of a
package, maintained or unmaintained.

Yes, I guess you're right.  Indeed, that's why I have the
lots-of-scripts package: to make each peg round by hand.  Then hope it
will fit with the next release of a package too.
