I'm afraid you misunderstand the situation rather badly. It did not work
perfectly at all. The way it was caused dozens of bug reports due to
crashes, which I had to deal with. I'm afraid that I'm not interested in
supporting such a fragile configuration, because I'm the one who gets
flooded with bug reports when it breaks.
