Personally, I would have preferred that because it's easier to debug a
problem afterwards when things doesn't work. You have smaller commits
to work through. Having a 150K patch means I (and probably others that
didn't work on that patch) have no clue where to start looking for the

The tiOPF code I tried to document with fpdoc did NOT fail with the
'label' or 'xxx of byte' syntax. Only after your commit did the errors
of that syntax appear.

That is why I split the bug report in two. The 'deprecated' issues was
always there, but the others wasn't.

I wasn't trying to be rude and point blame (I had a wink in my earlier

testing (obviously because those syntax wasn't used in FCL. But they
are bugs because they worked before.
