I can respond regarding Jam, though you don't seem to have asked the
promised questions: it does not appear to be designed to deal with the
config problem. As far as I can tell it is only a build tool.

I think we have lots of infrastructure issues to deal with. I don't know the
relative priorities of all of them, but IMO the build problem is higher
priority than the config problem... maybe even much higher.

Finally, as a moderator I apologize if the discourse here ended up insulting
anyone. Obviously we can't protect everyone from that, but we do strive to
maintain a high standard of civility. I hope that things have improved since
your last experience.

Best Regards,
