upstream to try and have it do that but no luck. But the actual macros
behind the scenes are very well commented so at least things should be
Anyway, I'll try to have another look at it at some point. I need to
extract the debug scaffolding and such and put that into Fedora
separately so that I can avoid rewriting it all the time.
