That was pretty much my position.  I agreed with the person who
was pushing for if/unless on fail that it would make life a lot
easier in the case of wanting to kill the build early if a
particular resource was missing.  My concern, howevere, was
opening up that slippery slope, so my -1.

That being said, I'm willing to conceed that if we get a
concensus vote on changing fail to have if/unless, I'll go along
with it.  Its an unusual enough situation that an exception can
be justified, and seeing as we "thought police" are vigorously on
the prowl, it shouldn't go any further. :-)
