We would basically just provide > the guessing logic. That's quite exact. I mean the word 'guessing'. We can't really provide reliable way of dealing with what you're suggesting (unless we cut the limit really small) nor we can guarantee atomicity. Therefore I think it would be a waste of time to work on this. Yes, it can be done, but the benefits are pretty small IMO.Yes, I agree. Therefore I opted to add the notice for this API.
I was just discussing an idea on a side. I'm still OK with the notice. I'm not sure if that's exactly what Dan had in mind, though.
