I think I'd argue for djb-purity by default, which would seem to
be an argument in favor of having the build-time option, except
that we can't usefully bulk-build permutations of non-default
options, so it seems to be an argument in favor of separate packages
for separate intentions. Which is too bad, because I thought I was
going to like the idea. :-)
