4. Leave it as is and make note of the problem with both solutions in
the README for the user to consider.  Never, ever, out think the user.
When the solution is this easy, and it's noted clear in the README file,
than a user has no right to complain or think a "package" as it were is
broken.  Period.

It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise,
Than for a man to hear the song of fools.
