I often wonder if the name "trivial-build-system" should not be
something more like:


I think the word "trivial" implies to people that it should be easy to
use with trivial packaging tasks, when in fact, the build system does so
little that you actually have to do a lot of work to get it to generate
a proper package... I certainly fell down that trap when I first started
working on some packages...

live well,
