Not worth supporting:  That is a nice, polite way of putting it.

If we knew what drivers or driver managers violate the common 
expectation, it might well be worthwhile to warn against using them.  
But I can think of no better way to find them than to wait for 
complaints about something not working.  It all sounds quite unlikely.
