Well I am not alone maintaining that package and I thought that spamming
comaintainers with "hmm, let's see if _that_ works" commit mails would
not be that nice ;)

But the real reason is that I always try to make sensefull commits only
to a central repo so every revision is a complete buildable version.
This avoids others checking out and getting mad about half made work.
