I added an update ;-).

If Vijay wanted the message to be a warning rather than an exception, 
the warnings module and mechanism could have been used (once it was 
available -- I am not sure when that was). But I think a default handler 
is even better.

Given that you disagreed with his disposition of the issue, you might 
have posted to this list for other opinions.

I also hope you appreciate that Vijay has stuck with maintenance and 
upgrade of the module for nearly a decade now.
