That's what I'm referring to.

I can see the motivation for such a proposal. But honestly I don't
think that the problem is so large and/or so frequent that it
warrents so much effort to avoid. Sometimes this is going
to happen and I'm going to feel that I was snookered. It's
a fact of life that I just have to accept and work around it.
I don't think it can be prevented, all I can do is to make
the library authors sorry they did it. Maybe that diminishes
future occurences.
