We don't upgrade our build environment lightly or frequently, and this
will be the last such upgrade for FX 8, since we are hitting rampdown
phase 2 in less than two weeks.
Ordinarily, you should expect to receive more notice for these sort of
changes, and they should be done as part of a milestone build or similar.
