    3131 * `ZZZZ` is not uniquely determined by the compilation inputs (see #4012), although in the future we hope it will be
    3232 * It is desirable that when two packages have identical `YYYY` values, then they are compatible, even if they were built on separate systems.  Note that this is not guaranteed even if `YYYY` is a deterministic function of the compilation inputs, because `ZZZZ` is non-deterministic (previous point).  Hence `YYYY` must be dependent on `ZZZZ`.
    33  * It is desirable that `YYYY` be as deterministic as possible, i.e. we would rather not use a GUID, but `YYYY` should be determined by the compilation inputs and `ZZZZ`.  We know that `ZZZZ` is currently non-deterministic, but in the future it will be, and at that point `YYYY` will become deterministic too, in the meantime `YYYY` should be no less deterministic than `ZZZZ`.
