Ah, so that's why you had replied to my private mails in a public
forum. That could be considered rude, and I hadn't understood why you
did it until now. I still don't understand what I did to deserve this
unfriendly attitude from you. Whatever it was, I apologize.

Your update, while needed, introduced at least one seriously
regression in usability. I'm not asking you to act like the package
maintainer, merely to take responsibility for fallout from your
commit. And I attached a patch. Please consider being more receptive
to this sort of thing in the future.
