That's not a good way out of it.  Instead of causing bisection to fail
on one week for ordinary users on macOS, it prevents them from working
on NetBSD at all without jumping through hoops to pass a considerably
higher barrier to entry.

Yes, there are ways to overcome that barrier to entry with enough
effort.  But if that barrier to entry had been around when I started
using NetBSD, I probably wouldn't be here today.
