    This has been the case for a long time already (so long that I can't
    if/when it started:), so how did this change recently ? It didn't...
    And vendors who supply binary only modules know already that they get to
    all the support as rules of the game. That didn't change either.

    It's just that it's now easier for the people who get to handle
    to ask "which modules do you use" as first question if the tainted flag
    is set,
    instead of spending hours investigating a weird oops.

    reports I should be suspicious of and ask for module lists etc)
