i agree that we need better documentation but i'm really not getting
the cycles ATM. i'd hoped that other people would step up and push it
forward since this is vital work.

i've been approaching this problem from the wrong perspective

most critical issues i encounter are issues with source. the source
can be checked at any time. potential issues with source should be
addressed as soon as possible. (and yes, i know henri arrived here
long before me.)

the best approach would be to run RAT on the trunks of all incubating
podlings. unfortunately this means finding the cycles to add the
required features to RAT and i'm likely to be very short of energy in
the next few months :-/
