Because you can recompile the same "version" of an ancestor, with a
minor change, and then you need a way to know that you have to rebuild
all your children and so on. In any case this is most likely fixed by a
set of no-change rebuilds. David: do you think so? If this is the case
you might be in time for intrepid (and, as an OCaml developer and ubuntu
user, thanks for offering to do this dirty work).
