I agree the post was a bit snarky, but he appears to be right,
factually.  We need to take valid information from wherever we can get
it.  I think Ships of Theseus are still generally derivative works,
unless a conscious effort has been made to Chinese-wall from the last
"tainted" version.

So my recommendation is to remove afio for the time being.  It does not
appear to be a particularly critical package (anymore).
