That's not the point. The point is that I consider a solution, that tries to
collect this data automatically, worse than the current situation.

IOW I consider this cure to be worse (more likely to break a release
systematically and harder to support due to a lack of transparancy to end
users) than the problem, specially since now we don't have to recompile FPC
anymore for a lib change.
