I have in the past, and intend to again.

not at present, but plan on adding nightly slack packages
when I get around to it (meaning could be next week or
could be years from now)

I understand much of the diving make system, but haven't
looked into this aspect, though I keep meaning to.

yes I want to keep it, but if it needs to go, it needs to go...
(The diving make system in general does need a good cleanup)
