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

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 ?
