9 Changing build and bootstrap would require changes to a few packages in
10 system, but also to catalyst. It would completely break all versions of
11 catalyst prior to the "fixed" version for stage building.
13 Basically, we'd have to support both for at least a little while until
14 we got all of the older versions of catalyst out of use/support. I'd
15 need to stabilize catalyst 2.x and remove 1.x, at minimum.
17 It could be done, I just don't think the amount of work required for
18 what it otherwise a cosmetic change to be worth it.
