are they really causing that much wailing and gnashing of teeth?
It wasted my time due to having to workaround the issue; which is time I would rather have not wasted, would have preferred to put to more constructive use working on something else.
It is impossible to say how much collective time has been or will be wasted by people encountering this issue and those caused by the 'global replacement' approach. It could be a lot or maybe very little. It probably depends on how quickly a user can figure out what is going on, why what would be expected to work doesn't.
In comparison to time wasted resolving issues with the PIO Assembler included within MicroPython this was 'nothing'; the issue and the solution obvious to me. Hence I classed it as "annoying" rather than anything worse. I wouldn't categorise it as a priority issue but believed it was worth reporting.
