You would rather that we duplicate all documentation on the myriad
ways you can configure each of our dependencies? Yes, our docs could
be better on some of the common gotchas, and if you contributed a FAQ
on how to get things perfectly happy in a multithreaded build or a
patch to do the required runtime checking I'm sure it would be
committed, but expecting to never have to refer to the docs for one of
the packages that are required is really kind of a tall order, IMO.
