If someone says people who don't care shouldn't have to suffer the consequences i
assume that means they are advocating for no breakages in API (else the hypothetical
person would be suffering). If you can't break fundamentally insecure things then that's
a blockade on fixing the system. If that's not what the comment was proposing then I
have no idea what it means.
