It would. Too many manual steps right now, including doing
things on several machines to check implementations that won't run
under Linux amd64. Or I could have chroot's and/or emulators. Sigh.
We'll see.

That's an example in a docstring.
It's immaterial which version is shown there.

Because 2.014 was an emergency release the week afterwards,
rather than something that leaves time for developers to update their behavior.
I notably need to talk to Attila regarding hu.dwim.asdf.
Plan: in 2.015, there will be a warning. In 2.016, it will removed.
Note: it was an unexported internal function.

Thanks for caring,
