Those upgrading would have to do diffs (between .rpmnew and the original) to see what's changed, and that often does not happen. Either way, an upgrade *will* have an effect that is a departure from pre-3.0.17 behaviour.

Fair enough. :-)

We'll send a PR over for the suggested unlang you posted in April. Apparently it works for all configurations we've tested (ABFAB and non-ABFAB).
