Tone might not have been ideal, but who am I to think to have stumbled over some interesting paradoxical dependencies in a system that has worked very well for some quarter of a century?

I might have acted a bit rashly, only trying to be helpful while stuck in a dependency loop.

(And I mentioned buster only to provide version, not to request any update or to complain.)

Normality is merely a question of quantity,
