I noted on the previously mentioned since I have been told repeatedly in
the past that carrying over legacy flaws when working on some
implementation is not recommended (and it does not hurt hilighting
potential issues if someone else feel like stepping in to fix them).

Though, the difference might be that it mostly happened to me when I
submitted something to `vlc-devel`, and not post-commit - that distinction
might be key here.

Best Regards,\
