C'mon rob, I'm not working on the codebase right now but I've heard
this argument from you so many times that my blood pressure raises
as well here.

If your commits badly break things you should take immediate action
to fix, or revert if you don't have time.
Failing to do so forces other to do it and if your local repository
breaks due to that it's not as important as breaking the shared one.

your runs of 'make check' failing to detect troubles ?
