Maybe, but I would rather lose definition from scans then lose developers 
because the API is to hard to use or too error prone.  Period.

Not only, but from what scanners?  Or am I missing something here.  We already 
do scans using the kde libraries, or whatever it's called.  It doesn't 
support passing in of 64 bit values.
