Yes, I am willing to do the work to get DPH back into the build in the
near future. However, that only makes sense if we are willing to build
DPH regularly. Also, I can't be solely responsible for all breakage
resulting from DPH; DPH has regularly exposed bugs in the past, which is
one reason to get it back into the regular build, but I can't promise to
fix all problems that might be exposed by DPH in the future :)

If I put a patch on Phab that updates DPH, are we willing to make DPH
part of the regular validation script again?
