First a hat-tip for even doing this in the first place, if more
committers ran -current, -current would work better.

Second, I wrote src/tools/tools/sysbuild to specifically address
the issue of being able to work, while running -current.

sysbuild allows you to build your system into an empty partition
while you're working (= good test of scheduler btw), then test
boot the new system, and fall back to the old if it caused too
much trouble.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
