Hello, These are all _very_ edge use-cases. The primary use is to build the software. Hence pulling in a compiler will not be quite harmful; it is certainly not *completely useless*. On the other hand it will clear up vast majority of the build failures. I was trying to come up with the least intrusive solution.
