I think this is not a good idea. Developers MUST take care of the
system's internals. It should not be problem for a responsible
developer (hey, it is just a devel package). On windows systems,
developers tends to ignore fundamental principles. Unix, Linux, etc.
requires some background. That is why unix-like systems are more
reliable than windows systems: unix's developers know unix, windows
developers don't know windows.
