I'm just saying that the change you requested requires convincing
upstream to accept a change and might require lots of other bits to be
changed not limited to other build systems and/or documentation.
I don't think that onus should be placed on a recipe author. That
being said, I think what you suggested is probably the right thing to
do but sometimes other priorities will come first ;)
