Eddi expressed interest in working on Builder as part of a school
project. I'm answering any questions he has.

I think Builder-style makes the most sense. We can work on that right
now. I want to keep Ucclia in the repo, so I'd like to port the old
Builder code to Ucclia first (so write gen script equivalents for
packages-ucclia), but it couldn't hurt to also get something for
Ucclia+1 going so that we can verify that we can combine multiple
distros in 1 repo. Solving the other cons [1] is a nice bonus that we
can focus on later.

Eddi picked this up as a potential school project. When you're getting
familiar with a new project it's understandable that you add some debug
code or hard coded stuff to figure things out, If you're working with
new tools and you're feeling your way around a community it makes sense
to be careful. Getting told that your code suck even before you show it
is also not a confidence booster.

I will talk about this further with Eddi. I hope we can publish
something soon and that this will be met with constructive criticism
from the community.
