first of all thanks for your interest to move things forward here. But
keep in mind that it is a very important area and we have to double
check everything before we drop an option ...

For example build --from is an often used option and as long as we have
no "real"dependencies that work properly we need probably something like
this. The html switches should have at least a replacement, we need
something that can be used to for the build bots for example. We have at
least to show an alternative approach to use log files or whatever.
