First: Testing with many of your documents does not mean that it "simply
works in all the cases", maybe in all your cases, but that is called
extrapolation and is hard to verify.

Second, I might be a bit rude, but you missed the point that it is
officially not supported behaviour, see my original email quoting from
the manual.

Last, I cannot understand your sentence:
  "free software work with patch even bad one"

Thanks, that is the best you can do. We don't have the capacity nor
ability for make each and every package work with each and every other
and each and every combination. It is enough work to package the stuff
as is.

A bunch of keys found in a drawer whose purpose has long been
forgotten, and which can therefore now be used only for dropping down
people's backs as a cure for nose-bleeds.
