This case is exactly something external module build want to prevent.
If it wasn't available people wanting weird thing would be likely to
end up with a badly maintained unsynced own fork. In turn this fork is
likely to cause repeat of old bug reports on savannah. (I know posting
fork bugs to savannah isn't appropriate but we have inapropriate bug
reports even now (e.g. bugs in debian build system))
