Well, *I* would ... I keep missing an SVN update and being unable to
use my installed SVN to pull a new one, so I have to rebootsrap again
all over, redundantly.

And no, I can't just wipe my installation entirely, as *some*
directions advise, because I have to keep an old one installed so I
can talk to the old versions on various old servers inside the
company. Hence my interest in long-term bootstrappability of
multiple, mixed versions.

You can say I'm weird (I'm used to it). But advising all
bootstrappers to --disable-shared is safe all around, isn't it? And
would save even such fools as I.
