Not after my patch. It moves append_signoff *out* of sequencer, which
in fact has nothing to do with the sequencer in the first place.

By now we all know what is the *CURRENT* way to do this; in other
words, the status quo, which is BTW all messed up, because builtin/*.o
objects depend on each other already.

We are discussing the way it *SHOULD* be. Why aren't you leaning on that?
