I'm sorry, I didn't intend that to sound at all cynical or snarky. I

using XyMTeX in my thesis), and I say that without making any guess
(optimistic or pessimistic) of the probability of that occurring.

it was easily available to a wider audience capable of providing bug
reports and code -- say, the users of Debian and TeX Live. :-)
