 Me neither. But I don't want to make it harder for anonymous builder and
 doing less steps during the release cycle can't hurt. So, I am in favor of
 having the warning in case someone does not have all the things needed for
 the incrementals.

 Downloading and using the other MARs + getting reproducible MAR files in
 return that match ours might need more thinking anyway due to the
 signatures which start to get included. I think this complication can be
 handled in the future if need arises, in a different bug.

 least not at the moment.

 If you want, just say so. :)
