No, what you are saying has the logical consequence is that you want to 
keep the bugs in pd and introduce new workarounds that each person will 
have to explicitly use whenever they want to use the non-buggy behaviour. 
You can't both fix bugs and not fix them. You have already asked me to 
make workarounds for bugs that _no-one_ ever relies on, and this is 
because of such a request that we are still talking about this now.

*Please* stop kidding me and most of all *please* stop kidding yourself.

It's for the good of pd-extended and of all things pd.
