If this is because of Bug #111162, things can be fixed easily.
(as I said in another post just some minutes ago, I just
need to recommit the changes made after cnri-16-start.)

I wouldn't be terribly concerned about its (maybe temporary)
death, though. After I learned more about it I am sure I
want to use round() rather than math.rint().
