The only important thing is if it's still a good tool for traffic
shaping. If it is old, there's no problem (as far as it's still good).

It is a very honest advice/encouragement.

To avoid going off-topic, I'll be concise: you are right, in particular
for a couple of questions I asked here lately. Sometimes I don't feel
fully independent; in this case, there are two layered difficulties:
comprehension of network protocols/procedures, and comprehension of
source code. Each of them alone is beyond my capabilities.

However, I get the suggestion and will try to do my best.
