As I mentioned before, Eric, in the absence of a *published standard* 
expecting a non-FOO implementation to match FOO's "in all aspects" is rather 
unreasonable. We'll have to stick to the "case-by-case method".

As you could see, we are fast to fix issues ONCE THEY ARE BROUGHT UP. Should 
you hit another one, please, don't just go back to re-implementing and using 
your own wheel, but let us know, what's you deem to be wrong with ours.

Thank you very much.
