That's certainly a possibility.  But it, too, assumes some minimal
level of cooperation between the platform maintainers.  At the very
least, the idea and perhaps also the details of the change should be
published.  It makes no sense to ask others to guess how to find which
places on their platforms need change from large diffs.

I hope so, because I've exhausted all the ideas for compromise I had,
and they all have been rejected.
