There's no blame,[1] only hopeful questions.  As I already alluded -- 
flat out said -- *I* don't know how to get at this particular code, and 
I'm worried that having now "corrected" the logic, we're changing 
semantics for some (incorrect) code that relies on the broken behavior.

Ah well, I suppose it'll work itself out in the end.



[1] It occurs to me that this is a great point for OS software: you 
*can't* blame anyone.  Unlike in proprietary software, where 
(supposedly) the boss always wants to be able to blame someone ... the 
flip side is that we're "safe" as developers, no?  ;-)
