Indeed, this is a limitation of using (inherit) in packages.
You don't necessarily need to duplicate the phases you want to change,
personally I employed a procedure that returns a package object instead
and inherit from it, as can be seen at <>.

Furthermore, I consider that nonfree software must be eradicated.
