Aren't you essentially saying that you like the change because it
allows you to join the fun of adding code to already broken trees?
Again, I don't see how this helps us to move towards
as-greener-as-possible trees.

If core-builders are repeatedly red for days on end this is something
we should address instead of adding workarounds so that people can
keep working without paying attention to it. It has been noted that
this is an often visited topic and off-topic to the thread, though.
