No. I have lots of local patches but neither of them concern dr

Ha, you "strongly diagree" as always. I knew it.
In short, you are not right. Period. And I also think about it.
The only effect you reach is that everybody using pbulk has unnecessary
sex with packages they don't need.
Finally: whatever reason for which some particular package failes to build
it should NOT lead to FAILURE ENTIRE BULK BUILD. It's absolutely obviously.
I repeat: failure of 1 of 9500 packages leads to complete fall.
