then rebuild it if it turns out to not work out well,
that's obviously a lot of work and wasted time that
avoided if I can get a warning that there is little

Also, if you have a recommendation for one or the

include or to make sure I avoid like the plague?
Thanks in advance for the benefit of your experience
