If I understand the upstream response correctly, a good workaround is
to use the HTML output method.

Since it's been a few years, I thought it might be good to revisit

Any news?  Is this fixable (for example by changing the "#if 0" to
"#if 1" as described upstream) or would attempts to fix it have bad
side effects?  Should this be documented better?  Any other thoughts?

Thanks for a clear and thoughtful report,
