The cold hard truth of this is; there are very few times that either of these things will ever occur.
Interesting. What are the other, er, vastly more common reasons are there that addons authors release updates?

Actually, scratch that.

Code:
                                                .:\:/:.
             +-------------------+             .:\:\:/:/:.
             |   PLEASE DO NOT   |            :.:\:\:/:/:.:
             |  FEED THE TROLLS  |           :=.' -   - '.=:
             |                   |           '=(\ 9   9 /)='
             |   Thank you,      |              (  (_)  )
