Well, the problem was noticed after the eduGAIN change, so that's not new, I took it into account.

I'm simply asking who else agrees, but didn't say anything up until this point.

To put a button on it, the choices are between fixing it by mid-May or so, and by end of year. The opportunity cost is that the IdP's next release, which will include (among other things) the features listed here [1] will probably be a month or so later than otherwise.
