nothing - I move on some time ago.

No - I asked for a pledge that if this happened in the future it would
be considered a bug. Since I didn't get one, there's no reason to believe
 it won't happen in the future. Rather than belabor the point, I just
decided not to use the library until I have to time to look into it.
