I hadn't known I needed to care about pari until your commit, which is
why I missed the start of the discussion and am only just jumping in
now. I agree, it'd have been more helpful if I'd been paying attention

No apology needed on my account (you're right, there was nothing
inherently private about anything I sent you), but others might not
care for it. Best to ask the sender's permission next time.

Point well taken.

Thanks for looking at the patch. I was just leaving the previous
behavior as the default, but a PKGREVISION bump is a sensible time to
change the default if we want to. Defaulting to no x11 is fine by me.

Yes, I may look into this next (but anyone is welcome to beat me to it).
