I believe that I stated quite clearly how this interoperability problem
"makes the package in question unusable or mostly so".

If you think that breaking working configurations does not warrant
severity level "grave", what would it take?

I don't intend to change the protocol. Upstream made a particularly bad
decision in increasing the buffer size without any change to the
protocol version, but there's not much we can do about that.

Will you stand by your "wontfix" decision if I come up with a
patch that tries sending packages using the "new" protocol and falls
back to old behavior if that fails?

What does nrpe have to do with this?
