I don't think so. If there are, we can have a designated bug filer that is
already tainted. I've already filed a few bugs so I'm already tained.

Okay, but what's the option? I agree that it could cause problems, but the
way I see it, you're going to get problems no matter what. If you don't put
in the switch, I think the best option would be to be bug compatible with
Sun. There is more code being written and debugged on Sun certified
platforms right now than any other, so all the libraries you are likely to
use will assume that behavior.
