Mostly because of about two or three people griping that their kitten is
not a pony.

*Usually* I find it doesn't prevent things from working properly, and
the occasions that rarely happens, a fix is the solution, and fairly
rapidly, too.

It does often prevent some things from working improperly (a little fact
that some choose to ignore).

But yes, there are snags from time to time, and they do get fixed.  And
that's a much better solution than just throwing the whole kit and
kaboodle away, as some would advocate.
