	Right :-)

	Oh ? surely we have that with ooo.lst ?

	I think the idea is to try to get all of these patches turned into
build conditionals - so we have a single build that auto-adapts to the
underlying system, and has features that can be enabled as required.

	Of course, the flip side of that is - we need things flattening and
conditionalizing, and fixing in the bootstrap (and other) repos - rather
than continuing to pile them up inside 'build'.

	I guess for 3.4 'build' may still be workable, but I'd like to
completely kill it on master (personally).

	Does that make sense ?
