Can you give a few examples, please?

I guess you try to incorporate changes one-by-one, with some long-term
goal in mind. It is impossible to predict what reactions a change to
the build procedure will cause.

I can tell for certain that a process that reverts setup.py to use
autoconf instead will be rejected.
