It's not only about gump's signal/noise ratio but the attitude adopted
when things break. Allowing unaware developers to become aware that
things broke (or may brake) offers tangible benefits.

Once the dialog is triggered, it should go both ways. Depicting gump
offenders as morons won't get us anywhere.

In the past, the social algorithm for gump has been:

1) Gump checks for dependency issues.

2) If gump detects problems, social pressure is applied on the
offender until the offenders yield. Otherwise, the offender is
depicted as an insensitive moron.

I suggest you review this social algorithm.
