Oh yes. I had to do a serious amount of copy'n'paste just to get
-framework added to the standard command line arguments, and that
ended up resulting in a new toolchain being created (which probably
won't work on non-Mac platforms anyway). I'm planning to junk that and
try and inject args dynamically based on a generic setting somewhere
else in the future, but the xml-of-xml-of-xml was error prone at best.
