Sorry if that sounded a bit terse! Basically, it looks to me like
get_iplayer ought to handle cases like mine, and also that fixing it
to do so might not be all that hard for the developer(s). If I can
expedite that process by filing a bug report then I'll gladly do so.

(I'm not sure if the dev(s) read this mailing list, and I'm not sure
if the dev(s) follow a policy of "Unless a bug report or feature
request has been filed, I/we won't do anything about it." After all,
on some projects, the developers seem to stay well away from user
mailing lists, relying on a bug tracker for contact with the outside
world; on other projects, things are very different. Since I'm new to
get_iplayer, it seemed best to ask.)
