I wouldn't worry about that: unless they pay extra care to flush the
cache manually, they currently sometimes get one behavior
sometimes another, so they're already broken.
They're not broken, not of themselves.  Would you agree that because
syntax-ppss doesn't always return the defined value according to its
spec, we should move away from using it?

Hi Alan,

that's why I purged my code of syntax-ppss. Ironically, having another look at during these recent discussions, the interest is back. What about using the difference, taking profit of two different states in narrowed vs. widened buffer?
