I think this definitely constitutes the majority use-case. But I think it's 
fine and reliable in support of my argument because the corollary assertion 
is that you regularly do due-diligence to make sure that your site/app works 
fine in all the latest browser versions. If a browser releases a change that 
breaks LABjs, and LABjs is subsequently updated to address any problems, but 
you haven't yet seen or known about this LABjs update.. you will hopefully 
soon notice your site break, and can hopefully determine quickly it's LABjs 
related -- so, it's not a far stretch that you'll end up finding out there's 
a new version of LABjs that will address your problem, which you can then 
easily update (more easily and less risky than a jQuery update because of 
much more targeted/focused functionality). That's what Git repo history, 
readme's, change-logs, release notes, etc are all intended to do... inform 
users of what the update fixes.
