No.  We tell them that sorry, the previous code mistakenly used private
interfaces for an optimization, and we had to stop.  If they want to use
the optimization, simply update their system freetype to 2.1.8 and
recompile and bam, everything works.    Remember, that's what you're
telling every single user to do as is, only most of them don't even get
an optimization out of the deal.
