I'm sorry, but I'm not clear about the conclusion of all of this. If you
aim to have something changed in the GO32v2 code, I'd need a clear
reproducible scenario of what doesn't work before the proposed change and
gets fixed by the proposed change, or comprehensible clarification why the
current code is wrong and your proposed version is not (taking into
account that the person who wrote the code probably won't be able to
comment on this, so your clarification must be comprehensible even to
somebody who doesn't know the particular code at all).
