While I agree in theory, I do disagree in practise and today.

I totally agree keeping this on a todo list somewhere visible, but we also 
want reproducible builds now and using a fixed path is the only solution we 
found in a year of looking for it.

So, I don't want perfect to be the blocker of very good (in the case of 
reproducible builds).
