Come now - the broken excuse is an excuse. There's plenty of crap free software out there and some poor bastard trying to build it who can't change the source because the people who own it think it should be make's problem.

"Doctor, my hammer has a head so large that I always hit my thumb"
"Throw out that hammer and get a non-broken one"

The GNU tool working around the brokenness of some non-free software?
Some would call that collaboration in retaining your chains.



I haven't had a chance to play with the new functionality in the
repository, so I'll merely caution that having major new functionality
that will affect the user experience be on by default runs the risk of
there being a problem and having the new version be
tarred-and-feathered, and the projects that would most benefit from
the new functionality instead turning it off.  If there are other
fixes and/or features in this release that people are waiting for,
burning them on this would be unfriendly.
