An interesting meta-point: I would argue that it's a bug to switch
on/off support for anything based on the build host (beyond OS
version).  That may be the case, and this build may have it disabled in
But I suspect some build-host state creeps into builds that still needs
to be tracked down and fixed.

(Your notion that package metadata should point to a person who was
responsible for the build seems sensible.)
