Sorry - I didn't mean it to come across like that. Of course the code
is vital - the reason I replied to this mail in the first place is that
I've been suffering exactly these kind of problems, at my production
What I did mean to imply is that there is not the same active code
maintenance that there has been in the past - part of the reason that
these issues never got rounded out in the past.
As such I hope that assuming the patch works, hacks and other perhaps
less elegant (but functional) solutions wont offend simo or I as 'code
owners', in the way that perhaps they might have if we were both still
fighting over this bit of code :-).
Naturally I can't speak for others, and code still needs to be tested,
but it seems reasonable to me...
