The change still results in us maintaining 2 code paths. I'm trying to
remove such duplicated code paths from qbzr, and because there was no
api version bump, I have to lump together 1.17, 1.18 and 2.0 together.
This means I have to maintain this particular duplicated code path
(luckily it quite small), as I would have otherwise made my min api
version 1.18.

Again there is nothing we can do now, just giving feedback.
