Well, I don't see any overhead or any more to manage. We don't have to keep
running some tool. We pretty much know what the core libs are. Make it
policy, tell the developers when they need to freeze and trust they will
observe it. If they don't and break the build well, they will face the wrath
of the rest of us. I don't see why we couldn't make some reasonable agreement
like this...
