err, are you speaking of "[the gar] build system"? or the "raw API" one?
I think you are referring to gar. the "raw API" one does not have
setting anything mandatory.
In order to keep discussion for this "raw api" thread simple (just
like the proposed API ;-), lets please keep discussions of GAR, to a
completely different thread
