Excellent! None taken. I appologize for my poor choice of example.

Several people have included lens in an example of "newcomers want to
install x, y, and z - and it won't work with the platform." It is great
that lens is not the problem - but it does underscore that the other
packages haven't seen fit to match the same stability release points as
lens - hence the unlikeliness of them working together except at HEAD.
