I have made sure to ask about this in the past, so I don't think you can claim
ignorance on this use-case.  The vendor plugin has been the first attempt
at a clear response, for which I am grateful.  rebar2 had its core changed
to become rebar3 and any source code that is not dead can change.
So, I see no reason why rebar3 is unable to change.  It isn't as if rebar3
has a technical design document to follow in a waterfall model or fits to
an ISO spec, or even an RFC.
