My impression is that you have not been too cautious. Rather I believe
you might have underestimated the problem with complexity. This is
quite human. Experience help, but it can perhaps be best understood as
a logical/mathematical problem.

Could you please really consider the alternative of doing this things
on a separate branch?

It will be no big problem for me checking out such a branch and just
compiling it. (And it is easy providing a script for others to use
doing the same thing.)
