True, but sometimes major features are addressed in a minor release.
For example, Borland fixed void returns with patch 1 to C++Builder 4!
And anyway, the workaround could well be due to a simple bug that has
indeed been fixed by the patch.

So I still think we should be "optimistic" for the sake of knowing
exactly when are optimism is misplaced.
