While I join you in commending the maintainers for persisting longer 
than upstream, the only change I see that is not purely cosmetic in 
essence is the fix to #340019 (correcting the protocol for streaming 
over HTTP).

Even more puzzling than why one would consider the risk of compromising 
a supposed production system for one minor update to the same CVS 
snapshot is why one would even run a program for entertainment on a 
production system in the first place. That's what I am curious about.
