This whole undertaking is short-sighted. Anything but a dep-ordered
built will result into similar disorder as we have now.

Also, FESCO, why aren't you able to launch such are mass rebuild
yourself in at least "manually, semi-sorted" order like RH seems to be
doing it? This at least would avoid the uncoordinated confusion we will
be facing now. IMO, this step of yours is irresponsible.

Embarrassed,
