Then they file a bug report, and I fix it at a leisurely pace,
suggesting they use a binary from the last release that worked. It's
not ideal, but that's life for you.

Travis is an awful mechanism for doing that as it only runs when
there's a commit to the submodule being tested, which might not be
regular. As it happens, the change to string_ref that caused this
issue was on the 13th of February, the last commit to quickbook before
you reported this was on the 12th of February.
