Fair enough. Still, that won't also happen on its own, and can be dead
easy, or not, depending on how accessible the logs are for a
sufficiently long interval of time.

Perhaps you're misinterpreting the reasoning, and it was more like "As
it has been broken for a long time, and we haven't received complains
on emacs-devel (or the bug list), it is reasonable to suppose that
there is no user interest in it."
