    Well, I am not sure about the size of the wart in practice.  It has not
    apparently caused much of a disturbance for XEmacs.  It certainly seems
    less relevant in practice than our traditional wart

    (info "(emacs) Left Margin Paren")

    with regard to reliable detection of strings out of context.

That problem is in a different feature (finding the start of a
function), and we recommend a preventive measure to avoid it.  So it
is not a real problem.  In Elisp, it is a solved problem.

But even if it were a real problem, this argument is invalid in form.
The existence of one problem we can't fix does not make it good
to create another.
