Out of curiosity, what would be the potential downsides to bumping the build
Is it just that it's inconsistent with previous releases, or that it
involves a lot of work? (I'm not implying that you're lazy, I appreciate the
valuable time you donate to helping us out.)
Or are there some other problems that it might introduce that I'm not aware
I'd just like to understand the reasoning behind this decision.
