Yes indeed this was the change. What has been discussed is the reality
that current guidelines don't actually reflect correctly. JNI is a
non-multiarch mess that has been impossible to work with and I've
partially tried to fix it before but in the end I fixed some things, and
broke others (because I didn't follow up with guidelines update). 

Too bad I wasn't aware/didn't notice that bug. I'd be able to explain
before NOTABUG closing I guess.
