That's your opinion and I respect it.  Still
`inhibit-automatic-native-compilation' does *not* disable automatic
native compilation but only a mechanism contributing to it, so it's IMO
a bad naming decision.

I have not said that once code is in master discussion is forbidden.  I
said that to discuss a change there's *no* requirement to install it in
master, especially before sufficient discussion is done on the list for
these tricky interfaces.  My 2cts are that these mechanisms and changes
should be very well thought and participated before being modified.

As maintainer of comp.c and related I ask to have this changeset
reverted and then we restart thinking again what's the best change (if
any) needed here.
