I put a special caveat in the TicketHowTo to write an e-mail to
the mailing list for new compilation errors back in the day for
just this reason :)

Compile errors are usually caught pretty quickly, usually because
some code is conditionally compiled and the dev forgot to check,
or they couldn't check because they don't run a particular target
machine. This leads to the "multiple tickets for trivial problem"
problem since so many people encounter an obvious bug at once.
