When you bank on alignment, don't just test i386 and amd64.
Please put in the extra effort to contact platform owners
to give you a thumbs up.

While I'm responding: please do a version bump as Warner
suggested. The pain of needing one without having done so,
is infinitely more than the effort or repo bloat can be

Oh, and no, I don't think this changes the ABI :-)

For a change that does change the ABI: revision 198506
