Tell us when Apple creates a toolchain that is not a complete mess.
Everything else is business as usual.

In theory yes. Don't expect it to happen this century though. If any
other of Apple's programming tools is any indication the will add new
bugs and incompatibilities at at least the same rate as they remove
I'd say if it is simple and clean, fix it. Otherwise leave it to someone
who cares enough to find a simple and clean fix (not sure if kidnapping
Steve Jobs would fall in this category though ;-) ).
