I don't think we can conclude yet "it's not a good idea". At this
point, my feeling is more: the consequences are worse than I initially
expected, which requires some more thoughts on how we want to handle
that.

Again, what was your motivation for adding those Config.in.host options
in the first place, specifically for waf ? Was it just about getting
this whole discussion started, and use waf just as a simple first
example ?
