Since I was one of the people who was asking about it, I
just wanted to say that as far as I'm concerned, you are
off the hook. The ideal of submitting bug reports and
being part of the development process is very nice, but
the top priority has to be on what works in practice.
Just my opinion... from someone who's been around consulting
and has seen some really extreme, and also mission-critical
(i.e., insane *and* life supporting!) computing environments.
