 So what? Are we in a kindergarten? If we say that no such extensions will be 
added to the copy, they won't be added. And even if, if there would be an 
extension that we'd decide would be worth the incompatibility, then it would 
be worth it. I still fail to see any realistic catastrophic scenario, even 
that would be nowhere near the dmake case. If our copy of GNU Make ends up 
being the only maintained copy, the FOSS world has a much bigger problem than 
LO requiring its own build tool again.

 The world is not perfect. I think we all know. What is your point?
