Only to the extent that we're not going to go out of our way to help

Mm, no, it suggests you're so busy focusing upon your "I think this
makes me productive" practices that you refuse to stop and consider
whether what you're doing makes sense and whether other people have

you're running 2^n build combinations step by step or running the same
package manager processes on a thousand different workstations...
