I encourage people who favor a different approach to implement
it for Linux kernel build and submit patches to Linux kernel. If
it is really a good idea, I believe Linux kernel people will listen.
But asking Linux kernel to abandon a working build system
without providing an alternative working implementation won't
work with Linux kernel.
