On the contrary - trying to figure out what happened in the build

symbolic link.

Count me in the no-wrkdir-symlink camp.

I find that an alias like the following is as good as shell completion:

        alias cdobj='pushd `make show-var VARNAME=WRKSRC`'

The only time I miss the wrkdir-symlink is when moving new patches from mkpatches into place.
