Unfortunately, this is not the case. A number of issues have arisen in the past.

not sure, don't think so

My main concern is that occasionally interfaces are changed, without letting us know,

modules, this is painful; many errors risk to go unnoticed for long, especially among 
less popular packages.

All the best, and thanks.
