I don't think anyone is interested in finding fault with you, or
with anyone else.

This project has a lot of broken, crappy toolkit associated with it --
stuff that looked cutting edge 15 or 20 years ago but is just painful
now.  Replacing it is will be a big job.  The first step to replacing
it is developing the will to do so, and the first step to *that* is
understanding what the hidden costs of the crappiness are.  We've
tripped over some of them in this thread.

Um, what else do you suppose the fact that I half-expect the build to be
broken on any given day means?
