Yes indeed. Nice to see a parent still looking over his child's development.

My 2c here is maybe adding a new flag is the best way to resolve
this apparent unreconcilable difference in expectations. 

This sounds fine to me.
Yes, that would definitely be a solution. The only drawback
I see at the moment is that either those that expect the old
behaviour have to change all places in their programs that
rely on it or those that already expect on the new behavior.
And finding all the places in a lengthy program being affec-
ted could be a major task...
Given I have a vested interest in keeping the old behaviour I would be happy to parse my code and change any instance of FL_RETURN_END/ALWAYS to what ever you choose. Adding  #defines for legacy systems that use the 1.0.90 library should keep them in step with new application development. A program was written years ago for this purpose and I would be happy to share it with others if required.
So after a bit more of thinking about it I would propose
to add a new function that allows to switch between the
two types of behaviour at any given moment. With that
users that depend on the non-default behavour would only
have to add a single line to their program, e.g. directly
after fl_initialize(), to get what they prefer. That
should be rather simple to do.
Even better. This would require the addition of a single line of code in a global routine that already exists in our code.
 The only remaining ques-
tion then would be what we make the default behaviour;-)
Keep the new behaviour as default. In this age of enlightenment we should move forward. As I mentioned in earlier posts I may yet find a use for this type of return.
                           Best regards, Jens
