Subject What the... static compile by default
Date Mon, 07 May 2018 14:05:08 GMT
Hi folks,

Sorry to be the bad cop again, but when the heck did this land into core:

As much as I love static compilation, this should never have landed into
master, at least not without an agreement. I strongly believe enabling
static compilation by default using a system property is a bad thing. We
already have an official, supported mechanism for this, which is documented
[1], so adding one silently is not very nice. I reckon lots of users want
to have static compilation by default, but I don't think a system property
is the way to go.
