​Oh absolutely, however there is some information the build-system must be
able to present upon failure, ​Just because the MSI-building failed doesn't
mean the problem wasn't caused by some other task much further up the chain.
During the process of building, that transient data must have some way of
being stored, what conditions where present, what rules applied, what
warnings delivered - that's the concept I'm getting at.
