And presuming to deem a dask "trivial-to-correct" with neither a
demonstration of one's own ability to correct it, nor any other proof
that the task is, in fact, trivial to correct, isn't a particularly
strong position from which to make an argument.

The fact of the matter is that the addition of a general --dry-run
flag means passing that flag all over the codebase, which means
changes not just to behaviors, but to published APIs -- not trivial.
