I'm sorry, but this is not about having "every WK developer fix non-
unified builds at all times", it's about everyone making sure that
their patches are correct. A patch that uses API in one file without
making sure the required headers are included is not a correct patch
and unified builds are only hiding the issues. I don't see how this can
be controversial.

Also, there is no pool of beginner developers who can be fixing missing
includes all the time; even if we had spare manpower, it's more
beneficial for the project (and themselves) if they spend that time
doing gardening or fixing actual bugs.
