Yeah, I agree completely on "must", and I'll try to fix that Real Soon
Now.  On the rest, I was just mumbling that I saw a potential
connection between an API that (unexpectedly) you are supposed to

in some configurations supposedly involving third-party software that
developers can't readily reproduce.  (unclear to me how much of this
is urban legend)
