Why?

Why shouldn't I expect that? I already outlined exactly _how_ it could be
done.

Why are people saying that technology has to suck?

No. It's _not_ right. The code knows what is wrong. Considering it a fatal
error is _stupid_ and bad technology, when it could have just fixed it.

This is not about "testing all versions". It's fine to have just one
combination. But why the hell doesn't it _load_ that one combination
instead of just dying?

IOW, there is a check for a version. It could - instead of dying - just
dlopen() the right version instead.

Why are people making excuses for bad programming and bad technology?
