Thanks for clarifying this.
(It was clear to me... ;-)

Since the use of the new tini parser has already been brought
upstream, and you have expressed your non-concerns, would you mind
pushing Volker's "remove unused code" patch (or giving your review),
so as to eliminate any remaining doubts, and thereby finally
settling this exasperating discussion? :-)

I would greatly appreciate this!
