How does that work when an author releases a new version of a package?
Surely then (since as has been said before any change will change
output) the output changes.  For example, The py2tex program was
(according to its maintainer) broken by a recent LaTeX change.
Now it just fails with an error message about \@@ifstar being
unrecognized.
