If a machine profile is generated before the installing from *source code* takes place, so to
speack, and if a good debugging system is in place, i don't see why a proper formated compiler
dump cannot be generated and sent "home"...
Better!... much better... not only *obvious* bug squash but also dependency resolve...since
the installation should be done from online, that is, the actual packages reside in the
server, and as i mentioned above something like LLVM is used, i don't see why a distro cannot
offer distribution in SSA IL format and vectorLLVM and or Gallium3D IL format!... that is, the
distros can make a full good job debugging at compile and link-time and what mostly is used in
the client/costumer machine is the backend infrastructure for native code generation and
transformation and part of the "optimization" envelope.
That is why i mentioned offering also *high profile* commercial apps and even for Windows(R)
environment that could be run in a virtualization environment with proper format to take
*wine*(ReactOS is basically wine on top of a microkernel if i'm not mistaken) into new levels.
I doubt that if RH or any other distro approach Adobe, peoplesoft, PHP, Sage or other
softhouse and say your source code will be transfered around *plainly* over the internet, they
would accept... they would refuse!... obvious!...
But if they say, don't worry they will go in SSA format, and we have good security measures
any way, they will probably say *yes*... its all advantages.
But, yes you are right, difficult to track bugs would be a completely different history... but
that is why there will be all advantages for the distros to collaborate more closely.
