What gives you that impression?  What mystery did I speak about?  What makes you
think that I "seem to think" there is a mystery, great or small?

I am ignorant of the various implementations - that's the only "mystery" I'm
aware of: ignorance.  I have been speaking only about what a user sees.

If my suggestion to maybe look at how Martin kept backward compatibility is not
helpful then please ignore it.  All I know is the behavior I see: his code was,
AFAICT, backward compatible.  The current code has at least this bug, so far.

Great, then there is presumably no problem.  Make it work fine.  DTRT.
