My bad. My experience with sbo slackbuild maintainers is that most of
them (read 9 out of 10) don't even bother to reply or do something with
patches or new packages. I didn't intend to get around you, I just
thought that a maintainer supposedly reads the mailing list, and if
not (hence the phrase "won't step up"), then the package should be
updated anyways.

Critical means exactly that. Critical. Executing arbitrary code (as is
the case with most of the stack overflows) _is_ critical.
Also, your definition of "pretty rare" doesn't hold; how would you know
who uses it on a day to day basis...
