Those people who have stupid platforms that require major chunks of
memory should have been paying attention and evaluated the patch six
months ago.

They partly did that, and asked some questions about how to solve it.
They got answers, and then nothing happened.  And it's somehow my
problem that they did nothing?

*They* should have done more to help instead of ignoring the issue,
then we'd know where things were _before_ the patch was originally

Not my problem.
