That was probably phrased badly. I don't know of any platforms out
there in the wild where this will be an issue. So we don't expect this
to impact any end users.

But, I'm not an end user. This bug is impacting me today. I'd like to
see it fixed as widely as possible so that end users have little chance
of running in to it in the future.
