What I have in head is also future developments; my decision can seem 
hasty and/or hotheaded if only looking at the past.

There are many reasons for that, but especially, we need to take care of 
distributing the software ourselves, because DesireData has been too long 
a hard-to-reach piece of software; so I added some more portability and 
turned the buildsystem in something that I can manage myself because I 
need to take care of a buildsystem for our testers.

No, it *never* makes any sense, because there's always one more upcoming 
release... just wait one more year... and one more... and yet one more...!

Well, I'll pick those changes from your branch eventually, after they 
become public. You won't have to submit it in our bugtracker ;)
