What I'm saying is that these numbers often happen naturally instead of forced
by a full rebuild. _That_ is the model that hasn't changed. The ONLY time
we've done a forced rebuild is for technical reasons and NOT for arbitrary
reasons like "hrm, this is test2, maybe we should rebuild everything just for
the hell of it" or "there is a lot of disttags that haven't been updated,
lets do rebuilds to reset them, that sounds like a good idea...".
Rebuilding for technical reasons is fine, relying upon throwaway rebuilds to
find said technical reasons is strongly encouraged. Picking arbitrary points
to forcefully rebuild everything is not.
