It was a classic use case: I pulled your repository and things
stopped working for me.  I needed to file a ticket, so I needed to
narrow down when the problem was introduced.

Of course, I could have avoided filing a ticket in the first place
had I been building experimental a second time, after bootstrapping,
but I was happy with just how easy it was to do.

I was speaking specifically about this ticket:

Where a spurious warning about define-values was suppressed.  I use
that idiom a lot, because I want to share variables between two or
more "top-level" routines, but don't want those variables visible
anywhere else.  I'm glad not to get a warning about using it any
