Only if one is jumping down a rabbit hole! That's a completely different 
matter, not related to my post. Could be a fun rabbit hole I guess, if 
you enjoy that sort of thing.

No you don't; that's the problem. If you were the hypothetical 
newest-build-only type (which I've long known known that you're not) and 
if this bug is not in-your-face obvious, you might not notice it. You 
wouldn't be sneaking off to your beloved 7.1.4.

Fortunately in real life you're taking the position that you're arguing 
against here, and therefore in better shape to catch regressions. Good 
job! You're all set.
