I'm not, James is though, saying we should do this.. just that it's
possible. But one way to do it is to agree on an API for building, testing,
etc. Such an API would be up for design. It could be we have bash/bat/etc,
or it could be a single build system, or it could be a single package
manager that supports the use case.
