That's comparing apples and twenty-sided dice. In our case, you CAN do

No, thank you!
And I hardly qualify such statements coming from you anyway, to be frank.
You'd just as soon load everything under root anyway and leave it at that.
I don't want my system built either way you've described, and I don't think
