It seems pretty straightforward... no one even tested the impact of
(at least one of) the latest changes on the library.  Karl has
spot-checked a number of verses around the Bible from different books,
and they all give output for the entire Bible.  I don't know if Karl
updated from 2303 to 2304, so I can't say that it was version r2304
that made the break, but someone made changes and didn't even bother
pulling a Bible verse to check if it was still working.  No amount of
test suite updates will help if the submitter doesn't even do a manual
check with as simple a tool as diatheke (and therefore probably won't
be running the test suite).
