Chicken and egg situation. Someone has to take the leap. Eventually,
once enough developers are on Rawhide, there'll be a culture where
people generally don't break things too egregiously, and are immediately
complained-at if they do, workarounds become known, fixes are made
quickly. But anyhoo, I have more developed thoughts along these lines
coming in future.
