I can understand that.

But please also appreciate our point of view: we put out public
notices saying that interface changes were going to occur and
specifically, deliberately asked if anyone cared. IBM did not say
"stop!!". If no one says anything, how are we to know that what we're
doing is going to adversely affect anyone?

All that being said, it sounds like Ralph can add back what you need
without too much trouble, which is good.
