and if it really cripples the one real user of the API.. then it's
clearly a wrong thing and it should be fixed (by going away and going
direct instead).

As for your argument about the bickering... well... afaics most of the
people who originally in the game quietly went away once it was clear
that LSM exports were _GPL only .. or when their modules were reviewed
and shown to be architecturally broken.

Who's left today?
