Put differently, there is a strong tendency for newcomers and
long-timers alike to just beep blindly rechecking their buggy
changed until they merge and introduce new nondeterministic
behaviors into the software. If they only needed to recheck the
specific jobs which failed on those bugs they're introducing one
build at a time, it would become far easier for them to accomplish
their apparent (judging from this habit) goal of making the software
essentially unusable and untestable.
