+1 - Also, the dbg to die change being an API change that is affecting
real-world applications using the API, the change should be considered
carefully and if necessary documented in an incompatibilities section / Changes
/ Readme.  I'm not opposed to the change but would recommend it delay the
release of 3.3.0 to give API integrators a chance to prepare compatible

Amavis and MIMEDefang, for example, come to mind.

FYI, DFS of MD has also given lazy consensus to the die to dbg change.
