    Practical consequences of establishing that kind of precedent (applying
    a patch on the grounds of nothing but vague references to possibly
    legal problems, with author explicitly refusing to explain exact reasons)
    can also be non-trivial... And I'm not sure that it won't have legal
    ones as well, while we are at it.
