This wasn't called for.

I'll support Ben here. This branch has been around for months. There's been lots of discussion of "hey, we're going to merge this into trunk soon". There's absolutely no way this was a surprise. There's been lots of time to test these things. There've been multiple offers from Ben and myself to help facilitate this. Ben has been extraordinarily responsive in helping people with the transition (which will have inevitable hiccups) and trying to accommodate requests for the behavior of the build system. And instead of trying to provide examples that are breaking that could be added into a regression suite, the responses that come back are "I am straight up frustrated with the state of the repo at the moment" which is not helpful for anyone.
