Thus my question... ;)  So it shouldn't have any ill effects then?  (Just
because something might be done doesn't always mean it sees the light of day
immediately, especially with such big rewrite in the works.)

Right, but you (more specifically John) were(was) talking about a "firm
freeze on libpurple and say no new API, features, etc." so I was asking
how/if it would have an effect on its inclusion.

One of my v/v guys asked me to check with you about it so I just wanted to
make sure the question was asked while things were being discussed.
