Hey people, here's a thing, stop making buildsystem. Yes, I'm talking to you!

In worst case use autotools, or write Makefiles manually, but stop making new buildsystems!

And no your buildsystem is not going to be revolutionary. It will suck and no-one apart from you will use it and people will curse you.

Stop it!

Everytime you make a new buildsystem, kitten dies! Don't do it for sake of kittens!

@carl @bshah At least GNU Guix is fine, it disguises as an operating system.
