I'm not sure about that. Victor and Michael basically rescued the
project from ruins and built it back up. Of course, from ruins, you have
to sometimes break API or internal structure to make things work in a
maintainable way or to do something you couldn't do before.

If you care about legacy API for a long term support package, I suggest
you patch the project from a spec file - which should be almost trivial
to do.

Then please don't make hurtful comments. You can't make an insult any
less insulting by putting a ;-) at the end.

Sorry to be blunt.
