Yeah, I suppose. However, you did mention that you were trying to

We don't test situations like that.

I'm not really "the maintainer". I'm just the biggest contributor.
The code in question was actually rewritten recently by someone else.
And you need to click the "full" button to see the full list of what's
being offered by setup. It defaults to only showing you things that
it thinks will be significant. If there's a bug there, it's up to you
to determine how to reproduce it, because we can't fix it until then.
