If this is the feeling of the OBOS build team as well, feel free to phase
Jam out. I'm not going to be here very much longer, as I'm phasing myself
out of OBOS anyway :-)

Really, if everyone (me not included) agrees that Jam is a problem, please
remove it from the build. I don't want to have the feeling I put you through
all this just because I thought Jam was nice :-)
