Well, you didn't, really (after all, this is not the first time similar
thing happens to me), and it actually turned out for the better in this

a good way to represent S with a caron.

which would have made that of/or even more noticeable.
I take the lack of answer to the procedural questions as "no, there
isn't any specific information, it's OK to send patches to the mailing
