Like I said, I can't remember a case were I didn't want to do such a
rebuild and learning how to reproduce the pbulk environment
interactively seems much more useful than a hack that you could obtain
by just commenting out the line in first place.

In other words: I can't think of a good reason for having this flag ever
set permanently in the config file and all other cases are better served
by learning how to do the above.
