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.
