I suggest we remove ft_validator_run() from the library’s exports
altogether, it simply does not work reliably. If we replace it with
function that issues a warning, no one will notice it. By removing the
function people are forced to recompile their application and thus
remove a bug from it. Inconvenient, but necessary I think. And I guess
not too many applications use it anyway as you found out yourself.
